Ways of praying

some haiku from my students

   Is this how you pray
   asked the simple, naked man
   to the confused duck.
*
 I bring word from God
  said the duck. Kneel before me
  and learn to pray.
*
  Why do you tell a
  duck to pray when he was
  never in Eden.
*
  In a naked state
   he confided to the duck
  ‘Peace is hard to find.’
*
 God is in the duck
  Buddha in the lonely man
  And now they shake hands.
*
  Naked man on knees
  worshipping a small white duck.
  Moon blesses them both.
*
  I pray to a duck
  at night. To show I come in
  peace, I pray naked.
*
Worshipping a duck
 is what a lonely man does
 when he wants answers.
*
I have found the duck.
He was searching for me too.
We are not alone.
*
Searching for my soul,
asking the duck for answers,
shedding my old skin.
