A Marriage Blessed by the Sun – Page 7

The sun made a solemn promise. "The feathers of all hummingbirds will always shine with this magic of fire and jade," it said, "on the condition that they look at me. But every time they turn from the light, their feathers will darken again, to remind them of the grey feathers they once had." Since that day everytime hummingbirds turn from the sunlight, some of their shiny feathers darken, just as fire turns to ashes.
