Redfearn says: April 18, 2013 at 5:40 pm I fear your fear is well founded! Reply WabiSabi says: April 18, 2013 at 7:06 pm I’ve seen those fierce little hummers take on some of the big boys but never a crow! Reply Maggie says: April 18, 2013 at 5:42 pm Wow…I want this haiku. This is art to me. Reply cookie5683 says: April 18, 2013 at 6:12 pm How simple the words you capture in the Haiku yet they move mountains. I hope you never loose your joy in this poetry. It is the simple that defines the complex. Reply WabiSabi says: April 18, 2013 at 7:09 pm I wouldn’t mind hearing a hummingbird whisper. Now that would be a wonderful sound! Gentle and sweet…… like your words. Reply yerpirategunn says: April 19, 2013 at 12:50 am Well well well sir……yes…speechless. Basho would be nodding slowly, signifying absolute delight! Reply Chevrefeuille says: April 19, 2013 at 2:27 am Very deep haiku Mark … strong in it’s choice of words and strong in it’s deeper layers. Thank you for sharing.
