the invasion of the duckies

Coincidental
with the arrival
of my grandson
a considerable fleet
of small duckies
was observed
surrounding the bath tub
kwacks have been reported
in the vicinity

severally arrayed as
tummy surfers and
sand engineers
in bright beachwear
with pleasant grins
their silence
contributes to their
mysterious character

grandparents
have been known
to be enchanted by these
kwazy kwackers
and walked around
grinning for days
anyone
knowing what
this means
is invited to
enjoy it
while it lasts
