This is Almina, THE BLING QUEEN OF THE AVIANS, who enjoyed a hedonistic life of pride and pleasure as a bright young thing.
But as with many things in life, the passing of time brought many changes ....... as you can see below.
ALMINA, BLING QUEEN OF THE AVIANS
Meet Almina, the Bling Queen, she's full of sharp angles,
Her mate buys her jewels, with long dingle-dangles,
A beak stud, some rings, and a lot of bright bangles.
Almina when young was a happy young chick,
She strutted around - all the others were sick!
But when motherhood came she began to feel blue,
Pointy wings, pointy legs ...... that means pointy eggs too!
She HATES laying eggs -
well, I think so would you!

Love, love, love it! Almina is gorgeous, and has already flown to a place in my heart! ValerieReplyDelete
Thankyou for your amusing comment, Valerie, and for becoming a friend!Delete
LOL! I love your colorful, whimsical, and even a bit satirical Almina with her love of everything that blings. However, I do feel sorry for her having to lay "pointy eggs," as if child birth wasn't hard enough. Your creative writing skills are brilliant too, Jez. Blessings!ReplyDelete
Oh she is full of angels and sharp edges. At first I thought her eggs were diamond shaped, wouldn't a diamond egg be pretty. She is fun and there is so much meaning behind your doodle. Great fun piece.ReplyDelete
