55 - Duck Pond

Late summer morning. As he ponders the cool water, does he realize the long sunny days are ending, and this might be his last warm-season swim? Or does he take the pond and sunshine for what they are; no worries of tomorrow? Winter's concerns can be dealt with another time. Today there is only this.















About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

I suspect he's thinking, "Dang! The water's colder than it looks. Maybe I should go South."

I don't think that I've ever seen a 55 that is based on what a duck is pondering....
But you nailed it Sistah.
Loved your Fowl 55
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

I do wonder. Is it just "one day" they take off or are they thinking about it? Sweetly penned.
