endlessly circling the pond
in search of morsels

  1. Ducks are curious creatures – effortlessly gliding on the water…paddling furiously underneath worried about the next scrap and morsel – hmm..there’s a metaphor in there i am sure 😉

  2. food is a heaven one has to strive towards…kudos to the couple 😉

  3. Precious: so much depthbto this haiku. The hunt. Sharing the meal. Companionship.

  10. Sometimes it is right there and we can’t see it….!!!

  11. So true – so effortless seems their pursuit. We could learn a few things from Mr and Mrs Duck

  12. Without a care in the world, a loving couple gracefully gliding, how nice!


  13. It never ends for them or in a way us. Lovely haiku.

  14. I note a common theme, food , food for the hungry…
