If it looks like a duck...
Nothing represents the message of "still" like water
First quad ride of the Spring today
Up into the inner sanctuaries of
Not large enough to be christened "lake"
Not small enough to be labeled "pond"
Perhaps a Lakond?
Calmness lies upon Her surface
like stretched silk
A lone mallard paddled out from among the cattails
Broke the perfect stillness
Leaving a trail of parted waters
That spread across the Lakond
In perfectly synchronized ripples
Duck and water
Without intrusion of one upon the other
Of course he wouldn't let me capture it on my camera
Kept his distance
Some things you just can't capture
I do believe that's a good thing
A very good thing....
