Fearless

The minuscule creature lays sprawled before my eyes,
its tissue paper wings extending to both sides
of its fragile, emerald dotted back
Grounded on my palm.

Its small frame was etched with the exhaustion
of maintaining
her delicate
rapid-fire
soul

But her eyes were alive with a different inferno.
In her dark eyes streaked the spark
of the insistence
to survive,
fearless,
against all odds,
against all obstacles,
against the volatile world that doubted her so.

In her dark eyes streaked the spark
of the defiant hummingbird.
