at the end of the day
like a hummingbird…
returning to its favorite flower.”

“A route of evanescence
With a revolving wheel;
A resonance of emerald,
A rush of cochineal;
And every blossom on the bush
Adjusts its tumbled head, –
The mail from Tunis, probably,
An easy morning’s ride.”
– Emily Dickinson, The Humming-Bird
