Ducks On A Gray Day

Rating: 3.0

I heard a honking in the air.
I looked from left to right out there,
And there was not a source to see.

@Khairul Ahsan I appreciate you taking time to comment. So many don't. We just have so little time in this world. So busy. Schedules so tight. It's true. My perception when I am inspired to write verse is distilled almost to the essence. And how nice of you to mention my other visitors.

Short and nice, and full! You have a way of seeing things beautiful, and describing them with the least of words. I like it, your frugality of words and vast vision. A word of appreciation here for the nice comments of Patricia and Dorothy too.

Thanks, Patricia. I think ducks do do that all day, when they're not walking or flying :)

Very nice poem Joyce. I just love to see ducks as they float across the pond. They float easily they look that like they do that all day. If they have wings they can fly. Loved this one. Please read my poem if i can fly.
