Busy Day At Lake

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge - Day 21

"Write a sound poem."


Turtle watches from his rock
Flutter, flick of wings in lake.
Honk! Honk! Geese gather.  They see
mound of torn bread.
Webbed feet flap towards food.

Quack1 Quack! Ducks hurry their place,
queue up behind geese to wait.
Pigeons lose.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
