Flowers and the Hummingbird

~            


                 hummingbird poised in air--                       

                 dizzy honeysuckle           

                 can't see the wings. 



                                                                  a long beak disappears

                                                                  inside a foxglove;

                                                                  time left hung in golden green....




                
                                     droplets on the petals

                                     of a fuchsia --

                                     the bird sips pink rain.
              
              
                                                                                               
                                                      ``

    This sure is a very vivid set of haiku, gautami :D I really enjoyed this and could almost picture this-- I especially liked how you say "pink rain" -- very pretty! And thanks so much for passing by my poem :) I won't be here as much this month I think, but I will definitely try to post a photo of my cranes soon and I will let you know :D thank you again and enjoy your week! hugs and love to you :D

    Hey Guati, I'm with PD on her comment below..this DOES SEEM like an oil painting as the huingbird is suspended in air...wonderful work on this power-packed entry...you wrote quite a hit here and I love it! Don't feel pressured to do this if u don't want, but would you write a poem about your last comment under my earth hour poem about these ragpicking citizens...you brought such tears to my heart to think that simply purchasing kites to give to them would be a MOther Tereasa solution. Oh, your heart is like hers...I am moved...please consider capturing the image of them in a verse. Even a series of haiku painting a story would be amazing....I love you my dear! Dont' work too hard! Gwendolen

    Enjoyed reading your poem and the imagery, your phrasing. Don't see hummingbirds that often, but when I do I consider it a special occasion.
