    Like your kingfisher haiku poem!

    the tadpole
    swims away
    a frog~~~

    Kingfishers, whether river or mountain kinds, are wonderful to behold.

    splitting the sky
    a kingfisher lifts a branch
    off the breeze

    __ Well sensed, Jeff… that sharp form of a Kingfisher, slicing the river to a minnow meal; nature's process.

    limb diver
    this belted kingfisher
    water wings

    I love this, Jeff. It takes me right back to an afternoon in France when I saw my first (and only) kingfisher. My husband and I were having a lazy afternoon picnic by a stream in Brittany with our young children, who were playing on bales of hay. For me, the bird split the afternoon as it woke me up with its flash of colour! A delightful haiku.
