Interesting work..A grizzly bear snoring probably would be a very rolling rumbling sound indeed...Enjoyed reading this eve..Thanks for stopping by..On most of my poems now I add something if you just click on "About This Poem"...The hummer is a hummingbird..Apparently the Albino Hummingbird isn't so rare..Someone sent me an email with a picture of one then I typed it into my search engine and there were many pictures of them..I personally have not seen one only pictures..Sara

You are on a roll with the kus Daver and doing a great job with all. I love especially the first on in this trio. The "fitful workings" is really special.

Excellent use of the "twist" in each verse, Daver. What creative images of nature! (I especially love the second verse.) Well done, my friend. Love, carolyn

You are really good doing haiku Daver, I think if I had to choose, the first one is my favorite. that second line must be those peaceful snores. Keep up the great work.
