Survivor

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Mighty trees begin their swinging
The tops touching wet earthen ground
With biting hurricane winds stinging
The world she knows turns upside down

 
The storm is surging and raging
Drenching the fragile hummingbird
And all around her nature is waging
A war as her plaintive squeaks go unheard.

 
Yet through it all somehow she survives
And lives to tell the most incredible tale
Of days and nights with beasts floating by
As she held on through the crescendoing gale.
