Underneath the leaves
catching the summer raindrops
from garden sprinklers

When we were recently in Colorado, I sat in my friend's yard early one morning and watched a bright green hummingbird fly deliberately into the sprinkler spray over a period of about 10 minutes. It obviously was having an enchanting and extensive shower, and it was relishing every minute. Thanks for reminding me of that!

Nope, not at all cool here. Can I visit your sprinkler too?

What an amazing catch this photo is!

It is always a treat to see a hummingbird. I hadn't seen any for long years till I started visiting a local nature center that has a hummingbird feeder hanging out in a small opening in a woods near a pond.

I like that haiku, too. Simple, with a little twist to the end.

Whenever I read here, I am always stunned how you find sacred in the ordinary.
