Hummingbirds

Ornate creation
Adapted to nature’s wants
A long narrow beak

Sauntering flower
to flower wings flapping fast
but stationary

In seach of nectar
propagating the process
of pollination

Written for September Heights of Haiku Heights Day 23 P#181 -hummingbird

  3. Yeah they come so fast
    And then they are past
    Flying to and fro
    Are surely a sight to see though

  4. The three flow together so seamlessly, the fact that each, on its own, is a well-written haiku adds dimension and charm.

  6. Beautiful. We are inundated with them here and during the winter in the desert. They never cease to amaze me. Claudia, come for a visit. I'd love to share them.

  8. The little humming bird does so much and goes so far. They pass through here, Southeast Texas, on their way to really way far South.

    Very nice set of verses, as usual.
    Thank you.

  9. There is a difference between the hummingbird and the humming bird moth
    The latter we mostly see
    at
    the end of September.

  10. These lovely little birds have a special job to do. I love to see them in my garden. They really are an "ornate creation"

  11. Very nice. I especially like the image of "sauntering flower to flower." That's just what they do, as if by magic.

    but stationary"
