tiny warriors
swords drawn
dance to unheard music

I love this piece. Recently, I've been drawn to haiku, reading it as much as possible, and this poem embodies the flavor of the haiku.

you've made me see hummingbirds in an entirely new way (to me) ... tiny warriors. Fast(!) warriors dacing to music. Making music, too, but it's so fast it sounds like one long hummmmm, one note!

I adore this haiku, and I adore the wee hummingbird.
