Sweet Little Something 8

March 21, 2015

For the next few Sweet Little Somethings we will be trialling a small change. One of us will post a picture from our week – a moment, something noticed, an image worth treasuring – and the other will leave a comment, haiku or link inspired by the photo. Please feel free to join in the game and leave your own thoughts, notes or poetry. We love to hear from you! H & R xo

What do you think, Ladies?

Does this one have grain

in a hidden pocket?

Ducks waiting for food
To feed or not to feed?
Bread crumbs for all

Lovely, Aimee. I think we should tell Ria that “bread crumbs” sounds much more romantic in a haiku than “cracked corn”… lol x

With you on that one!

Did you know you shouldn’t really feed ducks bread? I didn’t know this. A friend recently posted a link on Facebook and I learned some things. http://birding.about.com/od/birdfeeders/a/whatduckseat.htm Well, there you go! X

Yes, we are a cracked-corn duck-feeding family around here. Little e recently tried to convince me that because Peppa Pig feeds ducks bread, it is okay. We had to have a serious discussion about the misrepresentation of the facts in TV shows. 🙂

Tut tut Peppa Pig. Shame on you. 😉

I agree Hannah, cracked corn is less romantic for a haiku. But, I have seen the error of my ways;) Here is my revised haiku:

Instead of fish and bugs
hungry ducks eat cracked corn
Wishing for bread crumbs

Ooh, well played! I bet they do. 🙂
