The music played in her mind.
She willed it there.
Created a melody based on a mood,
danced to it
swayed and hummed.
Thought of the humming bird
and how it doesn't hum with its vocal cords
but with the fast, fast, fast
flutter of wings.
All to suck sweet stuff through its straw beak.
That flutter of thought made her heart
wing into flight
and the music grew louder and louder and louder
until it was all she knew.
The sound of her own song.
