The Humming Bird Metamorphosis Earrings:
The most cutting edge research into quantum physics suggests that this great reality is but a froth on the seething ocean of deep space-time. As the map would warn, ‘Here be Monsters’. Reach to the bottom, and bring forth a creature rebuilt.
The hummingbird visits my garden every evening. Hunting tiny insects, she is a zig-zag of green flash in the magic-hour light. Before she departs, I offer her a wish for rain. Folklore tells that she will carry it back to the Gods. She returns to a nest of open mouths, and regurgitates it as mosquito leg and moth wing. The nestlings are hungry for rain too.
