Piseco Lake Duck-Sparklers

Piseco Lake Duck-Sparklers
By John R. Greenwood
Baby duck-sparklers
In July morning sun
Spread happy duck trails
With little duck tails
Brothers, sisters, mother duck too
Floating feathery light
Unaware the peaceful nature
Duck-sparkler’s bring
Life’s tiny signals
Sent from somewhere up high
That bring ease to the heart
Wet smiles to the eyes
Baby duck-sparklers
So simple, so free
Adding light to life
Asking nothing of me
No music needed
Only words added here
A reminder to watch
For signs to appear


  1. I just love little baby ducks. Yesterday I visited the humane society where they take care of wild animals who have problems. We saw some little ducks who lost their mother...so cute...I hope they can nurture them and then set them free.

  2. John,
    Thank you for your skillful way of writing. I felt I was there watching nature at its best.

    Best wishes, Eileen

    John, Thank you for your kind words left at my Blog poem. Eileen
