a lone teal
circles the mallards
first school day
Issue 18.1 | 23 May 2018
The small dabbling teal circles the beautiful mallards, the most common, familiar American duck. A very nice image and a great analogy! Thank you, Marietta.
Grand thought within the circles, Marietta_!
__ Too, with each circle, the common teal may learn anew.
as ducks do teach of life
A brilliant play of imageries with poetic juxtaposition.

This denotes many 'first school day' feelings: excitement tempered with wariness, individual/potential loner versus being one of the mallards and fitting in … terrific analogy.
Great school-day imagery!
