Duck Buzz Haiku

Updated on April 29, 2017

I often walk along the River Thames in England, especially in the countryside. There are one hundred and eighty four miles of fascinating river paths, always a delight.

Recently, at Hambledon Lock near Henley-Upon-Thames, I came across these ducks, heads down, water spraying over them as they ate whatever it was growing underneath the surface. This is the haiku that emerged.

head down getting a duck buzz

a nice way to eat
