Hummingbird

(Image Source: http://en.wikipedia.org)


Competition fierce,
Hummingbird challenges the bee,
Stay away, I warn.

Nectar re-blossoms,
Satisfies warriors' thirsts,
Nature smiles in joy.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Hummingbird.

  11. It sounds like your two competitors have found a way to compromise and share. Wouldn't it be nice if humans could do the same?

  12. I like it, a competition between bird and bee ending up with the generous flower offering sugar to both of them.
    Wonderful!
