Goodnight, I love you

Love You Love You Love You again
and if hearts be tired-
Love you Forever times Ten.

When hummingbirds go to bed at night they slow down their heart rate and lower their body temperature. This reduces hummer's metabolic rate- otherwise she could starve to death in the middle of the night. The mini hibernation is a state called torpor. From a biological perspective, it's a great thrifty idea. Mice and little squirrels do it too. From a Merriam-Webster perspective it's a state of mental and motor inactivity with partial or total insensibility : extreme sluggishness or stagnation of function.

So moon and little hummingbird are smiling with each other. Love beyond performance and perspective, amen.

Shipped this out today- it's for a little one about to be born.
