Written for: dVerse Poets Pub – Haibun Monday – “Traditional writing on a shining topic” (posted by Lillian)
“Prompt is to write about something that relates to One Shining Moment for you. It could be an achievement, something you worked really hard for, a particular scene in nature that was awe inspiring, an occurrence in your life etc. What do the words One Shining Moment relate to in your life?”
My eight years of Oregon life, gifted me with golden moments–Pacific Coast beaches, Three Sisters mountains, and Multnomah Falls. Each time I discovered
spectacular scenes of nature, I marveled at them.
One moment that still resonates with me, is the first time I saw
a hummingbird up close. Tiny whirls of nacreous color darting
back and forth to partake of a feeder filled with hummingbird nectar.
I miss them.
