September Heights, day 23 Hummingbird

Inspired by the theme at


Also published and shared on: Haiku My Heart

What a lovely prompt we have today ... Hummingbird ... It's the smallest bird on Mother Earth's surface. They are such wonderful creatures in so much different colors. I have searched the Internet for a few wonderful pictures of the Hummingbird.

the hummingbird
his wings waving away the wind
looks for nectar

what a pretty sight
a hummingbird searching for nectar
Lily's cup

a passionflower
opens her heart with golden nectar
for the hummingbird

Well ... what a wonderful creature it is. The Hummingbird ... totally one with his nature and his Creator.
See you tomorrow.

PS.: I couldn't retrieve the sources of the pictures. If you are one of the copyright owners of these pictures please let me know ... meanwhile I thank you for using the pictures.

Each one of your haiga is a gem, just like the birds they describe!

All three haiku lines are wonderful. The hummingbird pictures are also nice.

Very nice. I especially like the passion flower opening her heart. That's so pretty.

Lovely. I like the passion flower opening her heart - the painting is complete with the main words in one line. Lily's cup is another fave.

Do the flowers open their hearts, or does the hummingbird force them open? Just wondering...

I love the use of the words "passion flower" and "lilly cup." Adds personality to the flowers.
