The Slough is a

restless pond within a
wilderness domain
and cloistered
in colourful bunches
ducks are slaves to respite
on this November day.

Heads tuck in
from unexpected snow
feathers anxious for sunís
return.

Then hurrying
movements begin a field
of activity
as leaders stare upwards
flight plans re-visited.
