    Oooh! You hit the spot! I will check back on your haiku – but really, I think this one is your best – not exaggerating. This is one I could imagine a wandering haijin wriiing,,almost by chance as he or she sits down and suddenly realises…on top of that you stayed within syllable format. Like the concept very much, and it works best with mandarin ducks.

    I love these they are so exquisite … and you have captured them. We have Wood Ducks which are a tiny bit similar.
