Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #84 Milk&Smooth

As a child I loved that there was a river in our valley named the Pudding River.  It was easy to see why it was given that name.  It meanders through the farmland of the Willamette Valley in Oregon looking very much like chocolate pudding in the summer.  With the higher water tables of winter, it resembles chocolate milk!  I'm linking my haiku about the river to Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #84 Milk&Smooth, a weekly blog hop.

Pudding River flows
smooth chocolate milk through fields
nurtures the farmland

    1. Perhaps it was aptly named by some very hungry settlers in the early days. I really should try to find the history of how this river was named.

    1. Thank you. Maybe it was named after Mr. or Mrs. Pudding, or for the pudding that the hungry settlers were missing.
