A gorgeous haiku Paul! It won’t be long until spring. This has been a bitter cold winter for many, especially for the east coast and Texas and other parts of the south US that are not prepared for such cold. Have a wonderful week my friend. Blessings xxoo

Thank you Richard. In fact your "Photoku" already exists under the name of Haiga; usually the haiku is printed on the photo itself. ~ Regards // paul

I am always amazed at the variety of colours to be found in nature, especially among birds. I follow a photographer (Frans de Waal) and he regularly takes my breath away with the beautiful shots of birds that he shares on fb. A lovely haiku honouring the Greator. ~Sus

And so much more our creator with his palette has given us the birds, animals coastal scenes the beautiful oceans, the soulful clouds - but the fire-tailed sunbird sounds like one of the most awesome sights on earth with its colours ablaze. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.
