Menoxtra; a little bit on the side

Missed out on making fun with Grandma's Goulash prompt last week; back to it this week.  Making up succinct mini-stories as prompted by a picture and including a bonus word if possible.  This week it is WADDLE.


Watching the water waddle
Along the ripple of the rock-bed
Noting the dappling sunlight
On a surface brown with red
Licking the rimy bank-side
Slick with blue-snow crystal glaze
Darting like startled skylark
In a frosted autumn haze
(38 wds)

Milla blinked.  Did she just see a nymph waddle over the water?
