Elusive I am …
Large expanse I fly …
Precious nest I hide

    Since this deals with nature…I would say that “Elusiveness” is a trade in surviving.
    Loved the haiku…

      Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Nature is an ongoing balm for the senses. Mother Earth calls for us to connect with nature daily for a sense of grounding and renewal. Many lessons we could learn from nature.
