Feeding Ducks

images (12)

Throw the bread

High into the air

Wait for the rush

For them to appear

 ——–

Wings flapping

Beaks snapping

Jostling

Pecking

Fighting

Begging

——–

Throw the bread

This is fun

Now spot the

Weak

Lonely

Hungry

Needy

The ones we’ve overlooked

———

Throw the bread

Feed every one

Try to be fair

Each gets a share

——–

    when my boys were young there was a park we went to and had such fun feeding hte ducks…we would get up on the tables because there were so many of them…

    I might be loving this because I love ducks, but I can also relate because I would do the same where I would throw the food at the weaker birds. I liked the pacing of this poem and it captured the scene well.

  3. Love this. Brings some memories to mind. I love the way this reads.

    nice…having an eye on them that are weak and not quick enough to keep pace with the others…being fair…a good thing..
