Yesterday I was wandering this hillside with the spirit of e.e. cummings close by,

( i thank you God for most this amazing day... )

as hummingbirds hovered and hummed and zipped about.

Poets make good company, often expressing our experiences and feelings,

epiphanies and insights better than we can ourselves.

So I borrow their words,

tailor-made to fit a certain moment,

and make them my own.
