Hummingbird Speak

Hummingbird speak,
How fast are your wings?
What is your name?
This one met me face to face.

This one looked me in the eyes,
I asked again with a smile,
How fast are your wings?
What is your name?

I wish to take your pic,
create nature vid
This one stayed and played
Hummingbird speak..

always great to see you with your lovely voice. Ah humingbirds! They've always fascinated me as well. I have never seen one face to face though.
I found the last stanza a bit ambiguous re who is the speaker.
Maybe adding some punctuation might solve the ambiguity?
Or it might be just me?


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Follow me

The last line does seem ambiguous. I’ll reword as hummingbird speak.
