The Frolicking Swan

DSC04978 (2)

The swan, what all ugly ducklings aspire to be.

They’re admired by all.

The definition of beauty with its white plume and never with a feather out-of-place.

Ever so graceful in flight or swimming and gliding through the water.

Their heads held high, always aware of the admiring public.

Rarely do you see a swan frolicking in plain sight.

Moving excitedly, cheerfully, energetically playing in the water.

Not a care in the world.

A feather out-of-place, so be it.

Beauty comes from within, one’s soul, an aura illuminating and radiating one’s surroundings.
