Carpe Diem: Daily Haiku 3

Swim Mandarin Duck…
I boil water…salt…pepper…
Said duck: “Holy f***!” :p

I’m so kidding! They’re not even edible – I think ^^ but my very same reaction when I saw the word prompt. lol

Because I lack the expertise to post just one, I’ll post many. Actually, I’m just gonna throw in every single draft. Ugh >< I’m trying to practice condensing my ideas cos I know I need improvement in that area, as well as discipline, such is why I try to stick to the old 5-7-5.. sigh.. but today, I’ll be extra forgiving with the number of haiku, but not the syllables — never the syllables ^^ I so envy the others who managed to easily create a haiku with the word for the day: Mandarin Duck. See their work here and prepare to be awed ^^
And here’s mine:

Oh how I envy
The loyal Oshidori
Ever loved and free.

Matrimonial bliss,
Concept of monogamy
True for them, not me.

Wedded infidels
Pitiful unhallowed bonds
Mandarin Ducks mock.

I turn a blind eye
As you cheat, and lie… I cry…
Mandarin Ducks die.

Story Challenge: Letter “W”

W is for Woman

A woman is warm,
Wealthy with love,
From your worrisome mother
To your wondrous wife.

A woman is willful
Witty and wise
Behind those winsome smiles
A pair of watchful eyes.

Some are experienced, worldly and wild,
Others may be meek and wide-eyed;
More than a handful are wounded and wrathful
But all of them, you’ll find, are equally wonderful.

For when it comes to love she never gets weary
Welcoming arms, wholehearted loyalty.
Well-formed, wispy, whatever she may be,
A woman is precious and of your respect, utterly worthy.
