DUCK


A still is silent
shape suspended - between
Pebble - Water - Air
sunshine and shade
The drake - parades
grey - dark purple
round - oval - Is
a drake asleep
Sheen of water
flows broken past
Reflections - Light - Thought
never the same
Is silent as still
The mind inquires
A shape resolved
between
Pebble - Water - Air

    Mike, good to see you back in. Another gem here. I like the repetitions. You seem to have an affinity for them and they work VERY well. Cheers! (Scotty aka Stan Grossman) (Report) Reply
