The sky, sea and land quarreled over colors to represent them. The sky claimed blue, but the sea roared in disagreement.
Land demanded multicolors: greens, yellows and browns. That decision angered both the sky and sea.
They quibbled daily. Only darkness ended the fighting. With the next dawn, the arguments surged anew.
To encourage their alternation of colors, her clan of hummingbirds wove a variety of darks and lights into a collage to present for their view.
They also invited dragonflies, bees, and colorful insects to add hues.
Members of the animal and plant kingdom collaborated to convince land, sea and sky to work together and share an intermingling of color.
When land, sea and sky
agreed to trade and mix, tranquility colored the day.
The hummingbird watched, then danced in triumph.
