Ducklings in the Window Wells

Maverick's Notes

2 Tankas & 2 Haikus are the styles of poetry implemented here. Felt like putting this into a simple story. Enjoy

Monday afternoon
Tidying the window wells
Baby chirps heard near
Mother duck worried, distressed
Saved I climbed down, set them free
 
Came back the next week
Noticed a few trapped again
Funky smells arose
Sounds of flies buzzing around
3 ducklings rotting away
 
It's unfortunate
Though there were 8 in total
5 alive and well
 
Happy perspective
Nature is cruel and unfair
Still I wonder why...
 
What made them go down there?
