The humming bird

The delicate tiny humming bird
With winged extremities
Hovers and darts lightly about
In atmospheric seas
With oscillating wings unmatched
By any bird species
And are rivaled only by
Winged insects such as bees

    I like this one simply because I am a fan of the hummers..Your work is well put together..I am glad that I chose it to read today..Thanks for stopping by..I am glad that you got a chuckle..Yes, my keyboard portrait does resemble Dagwood somewhat..I drew that one the board when I was in college before the teacher came into the room..That is the Plan Ahead Thnk and the teacher was laughing as he erased my design..I did it before class while the teacher was out of the room..I was getting close.Sara

    I like it, Jon. Hummingbirds are so cute with their long beaks. They dart around like little bees. I love watching them. So tiny little things. You did good. Love ya, Toquyen
