Mournful — A Poem

“Geese” — C.Birde, 1/17

 

Overhead,

wings spread to finger

updraft and lift,

they call —

And I cannot help

but try to count

the numbers

of their ragged “V”,

as if the sum

of beaks,

eyes,

wings,

feathers

would reveal answers

to mysteries

ever sought,

ever felt,

rarely

seen.

 

— C.Birde, 1/17
