I saw this

Beautiful duck

At the lake

The other day

It was so

Quiet and still

That I just

Snapped a pic

And walked away

I forgot about

The picture I took

Until tonight

Sitting here


About this year

And so much more

But the duck

Seemed okay

Content right there

In the shade

Not minding me

And my camera

As I wonder about

The life of

The duck

With red head

Written by

writer and novelist. traveler and adventurer. looking for fun in the sun. chasing the dream. can't stop the feeling that time is going faster.
