Family Morning

DSC_5043Wood ducks nest in a neighborhood tree

Ducks, in trees?

Yes. We learn:

Wood ducks have sharp perching claws.

His mom brings out the Aunt Doris binoculars

We gaze at the pair over coffee

Overcast spring morning

Too chilly

Bare feet on concrete stoop

But still, we gaze. Quiet.

Last night, she said with her wine,

“We should toast.”

“To what?”

“To the happiness we share.”
