Flying Jewel

Tiny grey bird with light green feathers
gracing its back draws nectar from red
hibiscus with long thin beak small
enough to fit inside the slightest
of flowers

After Flower Kisser flits around
several blossoms she perches
to rest on the slimmest of tree limbs
Her feathers resemble a polished
shiny jewel

Flying Jewel sees bright opportuni-
ties for food. Her wings rapidly
beating shoot her into the warm air
She flies up and down, forward, backward
side to side

Hummingbird dives to vivid flowers
and hovers over garden where
she will spread golden pollen throughout
embellishing the earth with vibrant
strong colors
