Simply paddling

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Simple
Kate’s Friday Fun: Paddling

We all get out
onto the water
mother, father
son and daughter.

Uncle Harry often
paddles alone
better he says
away from the phone.

A simple life
seeking some food
to paddle and look
a calming mood.

But then sometimes
along comes a brood
everyone splashes
fighting for food

It’s then a couple
may just get up and walk
silently and simply
without a squawk.

Or think about
taking to the sky
yo get right away
it’s simple to fly.

So that was a simple tale
of ducks who paddle
some who fly
others who waddle.

  1. I enjoyed paddling around with your friends, Brian. And good old Uncle Harry – looks happy out on his own, but probably a grumpy old man when he has to endure the company of others.
