We bring our tiny coral-pink foot up over our very long wing
We assume an upright stance, and let our aquamarine throat expand.
As we feel the sun penetrating our feathers, heating up our soul, we begin to keel over.
We allow the heat to reach our inner being
and we raise our feathers and hold our tiny self in Sun Salutation
until our skinny red turkeylike neck shows. Part of the exercise is embracing our vulnerability.
Back at it, the business of being a hummingbird.
Thanks again to the wonderful artist Cope, who has made this little paradise for birds and bird photographers alike.
