Mandarin Duck

Mandarin duck wades
Ripples in cozy rainbow
Sun rises ahead.

One Two Three Four Five
Walking across wooden bridge
On way to their school.

  10. Pretty lines to go with your pretty picture find. I like.
    Plus, I had no idea what a Mandarin duck was. I would have
    guessed though, that it originated in China.

  11. I remember, as a kid, I would always watch the ducks whenever we visited the lake in the town. Ducks are such cute li'l creatures and your haiku were equally cute. :)
