flurries of willow fluff
seven ducklings scatter
among the reeds

    wonderful, conjures so much . . . a like how the reeds of the pond give the ducklings protection, a place to scatter to. I can't help but place poets among those ducklings, in their beloved pond when suddenly danger nears and they need some place to go, to write about. Well done.

    I enjoyed this poem so much. How easily the little ones scare, how the earth, as David Caruso says above, in the world of their pond, offers refuge. Thank you.
