Nature Images: Ducks Ditty

Ashford-in-the-Water.
Drakes settle down for the night.
Stillness in September.
Beauty in the evening light.

Still on lookout but he’s claimed his perch.
Head sinking into body as the need to rest overcomes the will to stay alert.
Rest at last.

It was a magical few moments. Unexpected bonus at the end of the day.

Note: A ditty is ‘a short simple song’ and the term was used in The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley.

Being creative is the mainstay of my life, and poetry, prose, and photography is where I express my deepest emotions. I also enjoy the challenge of design and create jewellery, fabric bags, and garments and home items in yarn. Diagnosed with ASD at the age of 68 after fifty years in and out of the mental health system, I now aim to explore and share my experiences over these years. Apart from blogs and short articles I'll share my life in my verse and images.
