Buffle-headed by current events since inauguration day? Consider the Bufflehead Duck. (a 420 character 9-line poem)

 

Ideas that spark w/ wisdom are tough to concoct

& put into practice since 1/20.

But I’m not giving up because I think of ideas the way I think of Buffleheads,

those bouyant, tiny, large-headed, striking, black-&-white ducks

that winter-shelter in a nearby pond.

Underwater half the time.

I need to use patience & care as I scan. VOILA!!

I spot one doing that abrupt-vanish-resurface move & I snap w/ recognition:

IDEAS!
