A bit of fun for poet’s choice. What could this duck be contemplating?

Will I or won’t I?

My reflection says do it.

I dive in and go!

Playful day on the river 

Looking for some new duck friends

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. This was fun, Marje. We all need that playful day, and the duck reminds us of that.

  2. While I haven’t seen any ducklings yet, I’ve seen the first brood of three goslings!!
    I do have a couple of different types of ducks that come to the creek – mostly Mallards.
    But some are all white (tan) and others all black. The black one has a white bow tie mark at his neck – I call him a Tux Duck! 😀

  3. That’s cute, Marje. We have a couple of ducks that live on the pond down the street from us. They are fun to watch. And, yes… they actually go walking on the sidewalks. LOL! <3
