In the land of geese

On this beautiful spring day, we went to one of the local parks -- one that is very popular for Canadian geese or branta canadensis, as biologists would say.

This one seems to be floating in a watercolor painting.

Taking a bath? Having a disagreement? Not sure....

Silent and watching, right by the main footpath.

I'll post more photos from this park soon.

like 5 year old boys tussling
in a bathtub, playing
their part within
Indra's net, two
Canadian geese become
one,
or myriad wave
splash, during
instant when
as strangers for
get our own
play caught in nets, pair play
& clean, preen &
show
off, better
at playing
humans at home
than we're able as on
lookers
to play
migrants suspended in
flight - caught in what
wind's
up
drafts

Honk Heaven, Ms.M.

Once again, Anon gives me word envy; I love those broken words tumbling onto the next line. This is a great one for reading out loud. Wonderful exercise for both mouth and brain.

Dive: Anon says thank you. And it truly was "Honk Heaven".

As crabby as they can be, I love geese. They're as big as dogs, aren't they?

Ms M said...

I like having them around, too, even if they are crabby at times. These geese are big -- and you don't mess with a pair who are guarding a nest.
