A Quote by Pablo Neruda on beauty, color, hummingbird, and miracle

From scarlet to powdered gold,
to blazing yellow,
to the rare
ashen emerald,
to the orange and black velvet
of your shimmering corselet,
out to the tip
that like
an amber thorn
begins you,
small, superlative being,
you are a miracle,
and you blaze

 

From "Ode to the Hummingbird" 

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973)
