“Swift As the Wind”

Original Poem 
by Laguna Beach Artist Judith Haron
 
Swift as the Wind
Yet adorns a flower 
like a jewel.
 
In nature, it searches 
for a moment of nectar.
 
A breathless hue 
that elevates the soul.
 
Oh, to see one more 
burst into the daylight.

 

“Swift as the Wind,” is a original Illuminated Manuscript and poem created by Laguna Beach California conservation artist Judith Haron. It features seven of the most endangered hummingbirds of the Amazon Rainforest in concert with three endangered butterfly species. 

 

The artwork and poem of the same name I have expressed the color of the Amazon indigenous tribes cultural and spiritual connection to the hummingbird ! There is a story in Amazon culture of how two hummingbirds were the first married couple on Earth and we’re blessed with colorful feathers by other birds as a wedding gift!

 

The sun is a spiritual symbol of creation and bringing forth the gifts of Mother Earth with a wish to preserve them!
