~~ 1 ~~
 
the hummingbird feast—
taking a risk as they thrum
toward the feeding place
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
Hummingbirds at work—
one minute they have courage,
the next their hearts fail.
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
written on a wall—
letters to a hummingbird
and the chill north wind
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
a trip through traffic
to reach the secret place called
hummingbird heaven
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
If the hummingbirds
urge you to share in their feast,
what does it matter?
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
a liter of milk
brought to the hummingbird feast
and laced with sugar
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
Two hummingbirds watch
as I link my arm in yours—
they call us lovebirds.

  1. What an interesting and unusual mural, and great haiku.

  2. Wow! You were on a roll there.

  3. Very fulfilling my feast…

  4. Very sweet, especially the last!

  5. Well, this is an odd mural. At least, the pretty hummingbirds gives a much needed spot of beauty.

  6. I love the hummingbirds calling you love birds!

  7. Absolutely delightful! Whilst reading these the Humming Chorus came to mind.
    Visit Keith’s Ramblings!

  8. I love hummingbirds! As I remember, they must feast quite often due to their high metabolisms.
    Your words have revealed the shadow side of the Humminbird World. Truly a feast for the imagination!
