"The sun argues
ice to liquid"
by Mark Irwin
We took the dogs to the park today, the city has not yet filled
the pond. They wait till late spring to discourage the Canadian
Geese from nesting. However this pair of Mallards were making
do with the spring melt water in a low spot. Although they are
probably our most common duck I love the iridescent heads on
the males and all the colours you see when they preen.
"I am living deeply now
like the white spider I spy
among the wild roses."
