Jeremy’s Daily Challenge – August 17, 2014

Rustic River View by Brad Hammonds

A spark of humor
invited her merry gelasin
to flower in her rosy cheeks
as she observed, on the rustic river,
randy mallard ducks
splashing and quacking
in their courtship quarrels …
Teasing and joking
her boyfriend poked fun
at her interest …
Becoming circumspect,
she meditated
that not only ducks argue and fight
to be able to court their damsels,
so do some civilized men …
Like her own dear lover, Henry
and his rowdy rival Tom.
