All hail the duck!
When we were in Lucerne (Luzern), we purposely visited the lion (another post) and the Bucherer. Across Bucherer is no other than the lake! Where there’s a lake, there’s a
First a pigeon. Then a swan! It’s not everyday that I get to see one!
And look! There’s plenty of them!
They look so… regal, to me.
To be able to get close to them is like a dream I NEVER even dream of. Can’t help feeling like a National Geographic Channel photographer all of the sudden!
What kind of drama is this one up to?
Probably contemplating something deep.
Anyhow, on that day, I understood why a swan is naturally correlated to a ‘princess’ or the adjective ‘beautiful’. This creature is the perfect metaphor.
Even on water, the swan is a graceful dancer. I can already picture out ballet dancers prancing on the stage with Tchaikovsky’s music enveloping the whole scene.
I will miss this animal. It brought out my ‘artistic’ side.
Cheers to God’s wonderful creations! (and that includes the duck!)
