Enjoy this nature poem

I Felt The Sun

Beneath the canopy in the shade
Grooming feathers where they laid
Ducks would quack and wander around
Hallows earth on solid ground

Black birds foraged
Through the blades of grass
While the ducks rested in the shade
As I listened to the birds in song

I felt the sun upon my legs
And gentle breeze caresses my hair
I watched as the dragonflies
Circled around the flax

Riddles sounded by their quacks
Glistening softly as it lapsed
As I watched the river bend
Bubbles rose from a distant land

through your verse I too feel the warmth
of the sun...and love to listen to the birds in song

Reviewed by Paul Berube 11/11/2010
Very well written, Darryn.
Reviewed by Lola Nation 11/11/2010
I liked the imagery. I think that there is a gap between the tenses for example "While the ducks rested in the shade
As I listen to the birds in song" -- I should think it would be listened. Either it should be in past or present tense...which it flips back and forth from, as a reader, I am sensing that you are in the moment here.
