Hummingbird Earrings

They hang trapped in the moment 
dangling in gray 
never to fly again 

poised at the ready 
searching for longlost nectar 
reaching for the sky 

how quietly their wings buzz now 
dormant in their sudden doze 
crafted by a workmans hands 

now all life seeped out 
they sway, hushed 
hoping for another chance 

to take to air.
