Dutch Duck....

this earliest dutch morn
i heard birds flying above
sorry, no birds at all
i think they must be ducks
DUCKS? !
not so big, OK no birds but ducks
they are all so chatty while flying lowest

i realize,
dunno IF i am wise
they are not in disguise

do i stand
upon a land
my own
or not mine?

is this a dream?
no, not at all
just a real dutch morn

but those ducks flying
are they dutch or from australia?

how can i know about that?
my beloved bought a delicious BBQ duck last eventide
kept me thinking all the night

residents say this duck's home is in our neighbourhood
is this the same duck from that flying formation?
from which country from which nation?
the dutch ducks always fly in formation to the south
i must confide
last eventide
i could not swallow that bit duck in my mouth....

Comments about Dutch Duck.... by Sylvia Frances Chan

    Studying the direction of flying ducks to find their original habitat is not a simple routine, but rather needs a humanitarian poet, kind to animals, a poet who sees the beauty of the visible and invisible universe with her special poetic eyes, differently from the rest. brilliant dear talented poet, it deserves 5 stars

    Dutch morning was wonderful. Flying of birds you had witnessed. Realizing the wise mind you have realized the beauty of such wonderful morning. Dutch ducks always fly in formation to the south with much confidence and amazing their views are. They realize freedom. An amazing poem is brilliantly penned...full 5 stars!
