summer morning:
a mallard keeps just abeam
of the fisherman's boat

    why is there a lack of originality in most current writings.

    i'll "try" to keep this brief.

    in conveying nature, or being seasonal why do most fail to rise to the challenge.

    a suggestion, mind you, for future references:

    mist upon the lake...

    a mallard abeam
    of the fisherman's boat

    it may have been a summer morning but be a little more expressive.

    steamy reflections

    morning mirage


    humid sunrise

    sweltering heat

    the list could go on and on


    "focus, juxtapose, seasonal, and nature"

    though more often, "in need of repair, credibility, and all too often, the pretenders"

    thanks ferris

    passionate summer evening --
    bird in full voice
    from the darkness

    crumbs of bread
    behind the fishing boat-
    manna for wild ducks

    winter noon--
    where yesterday
    this same commute
    this same duck bobs
