Move Over, Dorothy


Who needs the Emerald City
when your back is glimmering green
sparkling in the summer sun
a jewel for all to see.
And Dorothy can keep her shiny shoes
’cause they really can’t compare
to the bold and brilliant ruby throat
this fellow gets to wear!

    Stunning shots Kathy of a beautiful bird! I do envy your hummingbird experiences, how wonderful it must be to have them in your garden. Your poem reminds me of Jesus words in Luke 12:27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” only replace with bird instead of flowers:-)

  3. I think humming birds are special. And you capture that in picture and in words
