Miz Quickly’s Photo Prompt

Immediate Backup

Out there in the backyard there’s
a whole other life under foot,
besides winter weather that is,

there’s snow-clogged ground
with sprigs of green rising up
from mud-soaked sleep, and

early spring sunshine licking
a sheen off stones, but there’s
also a plump duck sinking into

snow who’s ringing the station,
“Officer down,” he calls, and
asks for immediate backup.
