My hummingbird in my yard.
My hummingbird in my yard.

Snug nighttime nestle

Birds of a feather

Appear to flock together

Invariably

******************************

Black birds glean corn rows

Robins build welcoming nests

Hummingbirds hover

**********************************

Uniquely special

Hot pursuit exploration

Snug nighttime nestle

beautiful Ruby.

Even if the winds are strong, these species tend to flock together.

I guess they also agree that when unified they can be more strong.

voted up indeed :)

I'm so looking forward to seeing the red robins, hummingbirds and blue jays soon.

I think the haiku fever has stuck me again. I just posted one too :)

Loved your Haiku Ruby!

Hello always, I'm listening to Dean, trying to compete with your poetry. Poor guy. Just the right tone that you accomplished here with your poetry.

The few we get here are plain birds compared to the ones I use to see like Stella Blue Jays which acted like spoilt children. Great poem then again you always write wonderful poems. Voted up and awesome, Joyce.

Beautiful Haiku. It made me reflect on how many species of birds there are in the world. There must be thousands of them. I enjoyed reading it and was nodding my head along to Dean Martin's bright song. :)
