In the Harem of the Flower Kisser

at the break of dawn a Hummingbird starts his rounds Morning Glory sought flaunting a red hue - Mexican Sunflower tempts looking hot, hot, hot the Don Juan of birds sucking nectar from Beardtongue drunk on French kisses Goldenrod at noon Zephyr carries a sweet scent beneath a gold sun between Rose bushes the Flower Kisser gets lost in Blue Infinity Sweet Pea and Bee Balm entice with purple petals Bees join the orgy Monarchs swarm in droves when blue Hummingbird alights on Butterfly Bush Evening Primrose waving in the dusk’s last breeze the proper lover the Flower Kisser leaves his harem sated as white Moonflower glows *The capitalized names for flowers represent some of the most popular flowers visited by hummingbirds.

Welcome Spring

through the open door
across my room sunlight spills.
robin redbreast trills

the scent of blossoms
carried on April’s warm breeze
our first hummingbird

among red flowers
where my daughter twirls her skirt 
a butterfly flits

in late afternoon
laughing in our garden spot
a bluebird singing

Every chrysalis
A butterfly in waiting
To sip buds' nectar

                                     a puppy dog plays

                                     chases to catch it 

                                     many times it failed

A Round Robin Haiku Special

early bird special
red robins melcholy
beneath window sill

afternoon delight
a butterfly fluttering 
amidst garden floor

sun bids the day well ado 
hooting escalates

midnight  oasis
aqua velvet kisses - and
one dozen roses

Beautiful Butterfly

~Beautiful Butterfly~ 

Pretty butterfly 
softly dances in the sun 
spreading only joy 

Graceful in beauty 
she alights and then soars high 
in the light she shines

Animals tha I see

es 1/29/2011                        


                                      Raccoons chattering

                                    getting into everything
                                     They Act like bandits

                                 Crows Watching, waiting

                              Stealing food from other birds

                                    Bandits of the sky

                                Opossums not so bright

                              They carry  young in a pouch

                                   They look like big rats

                                  Snapping turtle basks

                         Smells bad leaves a strong odor

                                  Jaws ready to snap

                             Trout swimming up stream

                             Ready to be caught and ate

                                 I hate cleaning fish

                           Toad With bumps and warts

                             Snatching a fly from mid air

                                 eating mosquitoes 

                                   Butterfly gliding

                        Drinking nectar from flowers

Butterfly Haiku

Butterfly Haiku

Much fun I would have

If I were a butterfly

On nice haiku tree.

Sure seems so little

Was born with beautiful wings

To attract a mate.

Had found a flower

Which was pretty as can be;

Like no other one.

Days start and are done

And butterfly that I love

Went to sleep in bed.

Wings beat back and forth

As he flies from here to there

With no fear or care.

One day he did die;

My beautiful butterfly;

Life had reached an end.

From "The Defiant Haiku"

Behold! The butterfly is now
At full size and ready to fly!
A thief like him holds her still!

Poem Details | by George Zamalea |
Categories: confusion, me,


From "Modern Love And Other Poems"

A butterfly touched me
	With its silken fingers
And told me to close my eyes,
	Because she would reveal me
A secret!.
	And once I closed my eyes
And opened my mouth to ask
	Who was she?
But she reached back at once
With her wet wings and left me there
Trembling as a fool!
