PPF Hummer

                                                        A flash of harmless lightning,
mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening
From flower to flower he flies.
                                    - John Banister Tabb

And the humming-bird that hung
Like a jewel up among
The tilted honeysuckle horns
 They mesmerized and swung
In the palpitating air,
 Drowsed with odors strange and rare.
And, with whispered laughter, slipped away
And let him hanging there.
                           - James Whitcomb Riley

Happy Paint Party Friday everyone!
for more creativity in painting.

Savor the Day!
Yvonne
