A Green Veil

A crowd of pink flamingos move about,
the green rushes that grow in a veil.

The pond is wet,
and all that surrounds the pond,
is wet.

With that pink in air,
and green in air...

Green heads bent,
a pair of mallards float in damp mist.

In a fairytale realm
nature rests,
where green rushes grow, 
in soft ruffles of a veil.


3rd place in the contest
