HuMp DaY Haiku - Hummingbird Magnet

Sweet honeysuckle

If you look closely at the top left of this shot, you'll see a little hummingbird who just had to have a sip of the honeysuckle nectar even though I was standing right there. It's not the best picture, (one must be quick with these little guys), but I did manage to capture his silhouette. 

I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art. 

Would you like to share a haiku you have written? 

You may include a haiku in the comments, OR you may copy your blog post url (featuring a haiku) and add a link to your blog using Mr. Linky. And consider visiting other contributors blogs to see what they've created and say hello.

Wow. Your hummer looks like a leaf. What a treat to have it feed so you could take its picture. I can almost smell the honeysuckle. Happy day, Helen.

I love that you caught the hummingbird just in time. He does look like a leaf as Kim says. Nice Haiku to go with it as well. Great week to you.
