Lucky Duck

This picture came from another blog I have joined. It was a writing prompt. Here is the poem I wrote after looking at it.

Lucky Duck

Before my eyes alit, I knew

When

I looked up

Who

I would see

You’ve come unannounced to visit

Delighted to see you, though

Not surprised

You are with me each moment

I am away

Break of day into night

Lifeblood

Once strangers, now

Kindred spirits

We

Kismet?

Not so

Life

Hit or miss

Sliding doors

Serendipity smiles

One and one makes two

You and I

Universal sum

I memorize you daily

Your form, your smell,

your tongue

I watch as you lay there bathed

Early morning sun

A vision that sustains me

In my head while I’m gone

Away

Halved and

Whole

Our song

Drowns out the morning

Quacks

Fowl who must die

At my hands

You must have sensed my dismay

This morning as I sulked

To see you here

Pure joy

My love

For you

I consider myself

Lucky Duck
