Happy New Year

Quiet gray morning
Hummingbird sips sweet nectar
Toasting the new year

Joyous year ending
Pondering which feeder next
Raindrops grow larger


Wishing all who visit a joyous and prosperous new year. For more haiku about the new year visit One Deep Breath.

Hope this isn't a duplicate, but my first try didn't seem to take....

That first one is marvelous. And such sweet bird photos. Happy New Year!

What a wonderful beginning - hummingbirds toasting the new year!

Such lovely words and images! Well done, you! Wishing you a happy new year.

Given that hummingbirds have an uncannily keen sense of time, these seem particularly apt.

I really enjoyed these; thank you.

These are just splendid! I love the idea of the hummingbird having his own private little toast to the New Year!

Very well done :)

Great shots of the hummers. We only see them a few short summer months. I enjoyed your haiku. Happy New Year!

These both made me smile as I visualized them toasting. Happy New Year!
