Mandarin Yin and Yang

My response to Carpe Diem Special #214 Mandarin Duck by Buson

For this CD Special Chèvrefeuille has asked us to write a haiku with the same sense, tone and spirit as the following by Yosa Buson:

mandarin duck –

rain falls silently

from an oak

 Mandarin Ducks

faithful yin and yang –

below the peaceful surface

swift webbed feet paddle
