Weekly Photo Prompt – Lost in the Details

Weekly Photo Prompt
Weekly Challenge – Metaphor

Hummingbird

I want you to love me
as a hummingbird loves
the flower, tongue
tasting inside
sweet with longing
heart singing, wings
beating invisibly fast
gorgeous jewel green
feathers gleaming
in the sunlight.
