Speed of Love

hummingbird
Healing
At the speed of love.

Gentle in her movements,
knowing in her grace,
in her power.

Stealthy.
As Jaguar and Hummingbird
Meet.
In skies and in jungles.
The grasses that rustle.
And in the wind
that silent breeze.
Yet her padding is muffled
by the beat of the wings.
Impossible speed
brought to possibility.
The West and the North
brought forth.

 

To provide a context for this poem … In the Shamanic cultures of South America the Jaguar and Hummingbird often sit on the West and North directions of the medicine wheel.¬†East (Eagle/ Condor), South (Snake), West (Jaguar), North (Hummingbird).
