A quack and a dash,
a soar, and a splash
off with a quiver
into the river–
only the ripples remain.
Each different, multi-planed,
dappled shadows, growing bright
everything changes in the light,
once from stars, then into the sea–
all connected –ducks, ripples, sky, me.
For dVerse Open Link Night, where Lisa is hosting. She shared a wonderful duck video on the prompt page, which made me think of the ducks I see at the park where I walk. The next OLN will be on June 24, and it will be LIVE at 3:00 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time. As with all dVerse prompts, anyone can join in. Then dVerse will take a two-week vacation.
