Tell The Story — Ghost Ducks


Mel at Crushed Caramel has tagged me to Tell The Story about the photo. Mel has a lovely blog that is a reflection of the lovely person she is. Check out her blog and see.

Although this story is fiction, kind of, it’s based on fact.

Ghost Ducks

White in snow they waddle

nibbling stalks for seeds.

Night time finds them sleeping,

nestled in the reeds.

They dream of duckweed and

June bugs, for morning ducky talk

White feathers are their snowy shield

Invisible to the hawks.

Their feathers, also thick and warm

shield them from the cold.

No flying South to warmer climes

the ghost ducks live so bold.

One day the sun, it melts the snow

and brown grass turns to green

frozen dirt turns into mud

and yes! The ghost ducks

are seen!


OK, now I have to tag 3 people to write a story to the picture below.  Hopefully the picture inspires a story!

      I loved writing this poem. A neighbor about 3 miles from here has a pond with hills on all side, where a fence has been built around it, I guess as a protective shield for their ducks. They live in the pond year-round. When I saw the picture I thought of them being invisible in the snow 🙂
