With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: hummingbirds

at the feeder
The Humming Bird
by Emily Dickinson

A route of evanescence
With a revolving wheel;
A resonance of emerald,
A rush of cochineal;
And every blossom on the bush
Adjusts its tumbled head,--
The mail from Tunis, probably,
An easy morning’s ride.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stand still.
(potion of the poem, A Prayer in Spring by  Robert Frost)

Lorraine, these pictures are stunning! I loved seeing them =). And I think you are right about the bowls. We used to get wonton soup in bowls like that at our Chinese restaurant before I went gluten free. Hope your day is a gem, Maggie Ann
