Tachycardia


A hummingbird's heart
Beats a thousand times
Each minute -- I ask,
"Isn't that unbearable?"
"Oh yes," she answers.
"But there are moments
When it's merely relentless."
Courage, and encouragement
Come in all sizes.

  1. Hummingbirds
    Hammerheads and elephants
    And all other things for that matter
    Are natural wonders
    Courage
    And encouragement
    A bit of love
    And surprise
    No matter the size
    Are our biggest prize

  3. And if you are in need of either courage or encouragement, I would like to offer mine.

    I did not know that hummingbirds' hearts beat so fast.

    1. Compassion gladly accepted, Jenny. Hummingbirds also breath over 200 times a minute, and travel so very far each year.

    1. As am I, Rick, they're among the most unlikely critters and beautiful as well.

    1. Hope you're well too! I've been feeling better after a tough winter and hope to sustain and improve. Thanks for your encouraging comment. I'm toasting my nightcap of Woodbridge pinot noir toward Chico.
