on my rides
i am privileged to pass through
beautiful and natural places
that welcome me 
as kindly
as i welcome the privilege
of sharing this world with them

i ride by these ponds periodically
and this time i saw a little reed island
on which were sitting 

one slid into the water 
as soon as i stopped
clearly tired of the paparazzi

while the two remaining
sunned themselves
and revelled 
in this extraordinary
and gorgeous day!!!
