Lone Duck

The last duck is out in the pen pretending he is a goose.В  His long time mate died a few weeks ago. They both arrived as eggs years ago.В  There were 13 eggs and their Mom hatched all of them during a huge thunder storm..В  I remember her well, as she paraded into the pasture with all 13 babies following. What aВ  proud Mama! She has been gone a long, long time.В  Her last surviving son is with the geese now. He eats their food and swims in their baby swimming pool. He ruffles his feather just the like biggest goose.

He acts like he is waiting for something. This evening, he is watching the sun go down in the western sky. I think he is lonely.
