On your birthday

(Photo credit: juditu at morguefile.com)

For N.

If I were to com-
pare you, you’d be the lightness
of a hummingbird ...

– Leonard Blumfeld (© 2010)

Written for ‘hummingbirds’ at Haiku Bones.

Note
If I were to compare you ... but of course you're incomparable!

Wonderful poem, but now you have me at a loss for words, for I cannot compare yours to anyone else's!

"lightness of a hummingbird" (and the whole haiku) are very evocative.
