Ducks and Water for 'Queen Bee'
Ducks and Water
Lazy afternoon, sitting on the bank
Sunning my sides, warming, thinking of you
With you by my side Mother Time stands still
But you out of the swim, can't settle down
A duck out of water, keeps one leg up
I'm letting you go for somebody else
My sides will grow cold, still thinking of you
Beside someone new, your time standing still
You're back in the swim, nesting in warm arms
A duck in the water knows what it wants

I'm linked with Marian at the Imaginary Garden,
- Marian wanted a newly written poem inspired after glimpsing the works and nature of the author, Dr. Suess, and singer, Taj Mahal. Mahal is after my time, I was not aware of him.
- Top photo, 2013, was taken at Regent's Park in London. My grand-daughter, then four, and I were having a paddle boat ride in the lake at the park when we came across this bunch of ducks standing around or sleeping on a small island. The post was on my other blog, a poem written in conjunction of a group of boat ride pictures. Her family was living in London at the time, for nearly five years.
- Bottom photo, 2014, was take at the large pond at the picnic area of our subdivision here in Texas.
