Anticipating

Life for a moment
might seem to be
as a duck in snow
found so wintery.
We might perceive
it a Christmas theme
a time anticipated,
a wonderful dream.
For anticipation
puts forth a style
as ducks of winter
just waiting a while.
Thinking of Santa
his journey through
while anticipating
what he'll bring you.
The moment begins
as a passing thought
a time that portrays
a mallard's flock.
It might bring to life
a time in your mind
as a wintery theme
of Christmastime.
For anticipating
can bring in sight
a wonderful moment
of Santa in flight.
Yet as your looking
anticipating scenes
your own perception
might only be dreams.
