    i can't figure out why you used devoid. hmm? *****
    had hummingbirds and roses ceased to be beautiful? ?

    but i 'love' the image made by the last two lines. i 'love' birds and had the satisfaction of getting to view, several times, a few years ago, a nest in a bush next to a sidewalk, where i could watch a 'mom' interact with two 'babies' over some days before they flew the coop.


    bri ;) *****just wondering. :)
