blossom beckons

sing or feed

such zest for blossom

flowers win


sing or feed

Version 2

such zest for blossom


flowers win

These scenes from last Spring remind us that early signs of buds forming mean the nectar and blossom feeders will soon be out and about singing and feeding.

The top and bottom pictures are a Little Lorikeet and the bird in the middle is a New Holland Honeyeater. They were sharing the same dinner table, a flowering gum, when I took the images.

This haiku/image combination is my contribution to RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 106-sing & flower. You can visit this entertaining haiku sharing site where Ronovan the celebrated American author sends his weekly challenge to the poets of the world here; 

Also this post contributes to the 52 week PHOTO CHALLENGE, with ZEST this weeks word challenging a talented group of photographers from across the globe. Visit this challenge at and find this weeks sharing on Wild Daffodil’s Home page.

    1. Thanks Laura, the first signs of Spring and its mid Winter, we just had the warmest June on record and a government just re elected that did not mention global warming in its policies.

  1. A lyrical haiku! And the photos with each line worked perfectly (again:) The photos are lovely full of colours and textures… I never thought of birds eating blossums.


    1. Thanks Janice the subjects make photos and haiku come together naturally. There are many blossom eaters in Australia, the whole honeyeater family and many parrots plus others too.

    1. Thanks Debbie. This blog is just Haiku connecting with images I take or vice versa connecting two of my passions. I am still undecided to develop a Photos only blog that I have set up.


      1. Thank you for visiting my blog and the follow. I am fairly new to all of this and am also trying to figure out whether I want to focus on one thing or not. I like your idea of being able to pick the photos and the topics and then it keeps it fresh.


        1. The Blog Design for Dummies is helpful if you can get hold of one. I use my images in support of haiku so its very specialised as a blog. However the pages across the top is where I add other topics and will expand further.
