Lunch in the park

I walk by the pond,
sunlight dancing on the rippling water,
ducks quacking as they fly overhead.
A Red-winged Blackbird sits,
clinging to a single blade of tall grass,
the reeds swaying in a gentle breeze,
ten feet of amber tranquility,
as fresh water flows over rocks from a source unseen.

i feel like i am there in the park... there is nothing like sun, a breeze and water flowing by. beautiful. Thanks Jess.

i haven't seen a red wing yet this spring... and am an avid bird watcher.

dcb: Thanks. I was in the park and wished I had a camera with me. It was just so lovely. Lacking a camera, I decided to see what I could convey with words. I'm glad you liked it!
