It is Freezing

It was a very cold day in Belgium today. I found this precious

duo in a park in Brussels. These birds were amazingly colorful

and beautiful. It made a perfect contrast with the pale frozen

lake. The bird on the right is a Mandarin Duck. According to

an old woman who goes to the lake every day, the 2 animals

became friends and stay together all the time. Lovely couple!

It is Freezing


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


It is freezing

We are going nowhere

Coldness in breezing

Gathering around here

We just walk the lake

On a frozen day

Together quack quack make

On our walking way


It is dark still

Even thou its noon

And a bit more chill

Is coming in soon

We together are close

Friends indeed are we

As the bitter grows

Winter becomes breezy


It is sub-zeros

Or so men have told

All of us are heroes

That to hope must hold

And we are never lonely

If we together are

One for each here only

Below a brightly star
