In the Harem of the Flower Kisser

at the break of dawn a Hummingbird starts his rounds Morning Glory sought flaunting a red hue - Mexican Sunflower tempts looking hot, hot, hot the Don Juan of birds sucking nectar from Beardtongue. . . drunk on French kisses Goldenrod at noon. . . Zephyr carries a sweet scent beneath a gold sun between Rose bushes the Flower Kisser gets lost in Blue Infinity Sweet Pea and Bee Balm entice with purple petals. . . Bees join the orgy Monarchs swarm in droves when blue Hummingbird alights on Butterfly Bush Evening Primrose waving in the dusk’s last breeze. . . the proper lover the Flower Kisser leaves his harem sated as white Moonflower glows *The capitalized names for flowers represent some of the most popular flowers visited by hummingbirds.

I like the connection you put between the bird and the flower. I really like that you call it a flower kisser. Well done with your win.

Fantastic use of imagery; even though I know nothing about flowers, your Haiku conjures a cornucopia of colours in my mind's eye. Extra kudos for making linked Haiku appear almost effortless. Well done!

I think you should post a warning...fast moving object on screen....COULD CAUSE SEIZURES! lol...You wrote so beautifully with not a single flower left out! An ode to the hummingbird! I simply loved this haiku series! Congrats on its success! (The evening primrose is the proper lover! You got that one right! Wow.) Gwendolen
