Calm and Still

The shaded bench beside the cottonwood tree beckoned. Come. Sit. Rest a moment.

It felt good here. A pleasant change from the sunny walks of other portions of the Missouri Botanical Garden.

The stream gurgled across rocks. A turtle marched across the path and into hiding among the ground cover. The pair of ducks sat still as a statue.

Wait! They are a statue. I think I’ll name the one on the left “Calm” and the standing partner “Still”. Have you alternate names in mind?
