Duck – a poem in Visual Verse

The image Visual Verse selected for the March 2020 issue, Vol. 7, Chapter 5, was an unusual one. At first I didn’t know what to make of the photograph by Ryan McGuire, but I managed to write something in the given hour and word limit before going off-line to visit my daughter and grandson. Once again, I’m in great company.  You can find my poem on page 45 or you can link directly to the poem, entitled ‘Duck‘.

  1. You made the most out of that picture and poured life into it with your words, Kim! 💝 I especially like; “We made a yellow wig to cover up her scars. She learned not to panic on the back seat of our car.” Beautifully done 🙂

  2. A gaggle of couplets that told a lovely and sad tale; lots of dystopian vibe to the beginning, but human kindness prevailed, and we all smiled as the Donald took flight.

  3. Congratulations with your publication Kim and I’m glad the sweet duck was saved. Sorry to hear you are self-isolating and I hope the symptoms will soon clear. Sending a virtual hug across the miles xxx

    1. Thank you so much, Xenia. Not only have I been suffering from another chest infection, but I also fall into the ‘at risk’ category with asthma and diabetes. At least I got to see Ellen and Lucas before it all kicked off. Hugs are winging their way to you, Eivor and Pearl. xxx
