Ducks at Dusk
Once upon a time, in a small village by the lake, lived a group of ducks.
They were a happy and contented flock, spending their days paddling in the cool waters and basking in the warm sun.
But as the days grew shorter and the nights longer, the ducks began to notice a change in the sky.
The brilliant oranges, pinks and purples of sunset would slowly fade to deep blues and purples.
The ducks would look up at the sky and admire the beauty of the colors as they changed.
One evening, as the sun was setting, the ducks decided to take a leisurely swim in the lake.
As they paddled along, they couldn’t help but be in awe of the colors of the sky, it was as if they were swimming in a sea of colors.
The ducks felt so at peace, surrounded by the tranquility of nature and the beauty of the dusk.
They knew that no matter what challenges they may face in life, they would always have this peaceful moment to look back on and find comfort in.
