Green Feather Green Stone

A  L  O  H  A !

Have you ever observed a humming-bird 
moving about in an aĆ«rial dance 
among the flowers — 
a living prismatic gem 
that changes its colour 
with every change of position… 
it is a creature of such 
fairy-like loveliness as to 
mock all description. 
                     W. H. Hudson, Green Mansions:
A Romance of the Tropical Forest, 1916

San Francisco Chinatown
For instance, dragons are 
deeply revered by the Chinese. 
According to legend they have 
megapowers that include weather control 
and life creation. And they’re seen 
as kind, benevolent creatures. 
                                Jennifer Rardin

A good roof protector!

Hummingbird beams 
enjoyment of life, 
dances the lightness of being. 
Enjoy life's sweetness,
find the shaft of light,
share the ruby you carry,
rest when it is time.

                  Fondly, cloudia
