    Hi Trudy! How wonderful to meet you here on the blog site. I am absolutely enchanted by the way the hummingbird is in your picture. Surely it is by the technology of photography, however, with all the magic in your beautiful poetry I would believe in a second it is really there with you! Very beautiful! Look so forward to reading more of your poetry. Glad you are here! Love, Shar
