Just this morning I learned it is World Poetry Day today.
Often I love to share poems and the following one
has been sitting with me for a few days.
Can you just imagine a duck laughing?
Look and See
This morning, at waterside, a sparrow flew
to a water rock and landed, by error, on the back
of an eider duck; lightly it fluttered off, amused.
The duck, too, was no provoked, but, you might say,
This afternoon a gull sailing over
our house was casually scratching
its stomach of white feathers with
one pink foot as it flew.
Oh Lord, how shining and festive is your
gift to us, if we only look , and see.
