calypso

calypso darting peering through open windows rufous hummingbird an old gourd hanging blowing gently in the breeze its peach tree abode ----- this hummingbird has been hanging around all season, at first i thought it was simply due to the feeders. after doing some lawn maintenance today, i saw it entering a hollowed out gourd i put in my peach tree last summer. i figure, s/he is now part of the estate, may as well give it a name: calypso.

Thank you, Keith. I've got new neighbors who have seen Calypso about and I told them where s/he makes her/his home.

My first haiku - ever. It was surprising difficult given the parameters, but I think it turned out quite lovely. :) Perhaps I'll try writing more haiku in the future. Thank you for your kind words, Dave. - Raven

I can just see Calypso making itself quite at home - carefree and humming cheerfully to itself:-)

If s/he would sit still long enough, I'd attempt to get a picture to share. ;) Thank you for stopping by and taking time out to read. - Raven

I've put together an introductory piece, entitled "The Malkavian: The Embrace" (broken into two parts due to character limitations). Will try have to have the next chapter up by end of week. I look forward to your critiquing; be as brutally as honest - I won't cry, promise. - Aaron

You're welcome. And in case you've yet to read my introduction on the forums, I think it only fair that you know my real name as well; Aaron. But you're more than welcome to call me what you wish. ;) - Malkavian
