Wild and Free
By John Cannon

Ten or more
wild-flying
hummingbirds,

all juveniles
as best I can tell,

swooping, chattering,
dive-bombing each other,

testing all their skills,
clearly reveling
in their awesome abilities.

My eyes can barely follow
their frolicking dances,
their dare-devil maneuvers,

but my heart

oh my heart
is up there with them,

totally alive,

totally joyful,

totally wild

and FREE.
