the pond is still today – April 29

4.29.2016

the pond is still today

a lone mallard male

sitting atop the muskrat

house doing his part

to keep the egg warm

 

cool, clear waters devoid

now of the quackers

and quakers who

paddled so furiously

just days ago.

 

natures have made

their choices and the

mating grounds lie

fallow in the early

spring sun.

 

well done,

godspeed,

for another

round of life

begun.
