Magpie-Goose in Flight, Paul Thomsen

Bird in Flight



Explosive flight,
Instant, sudden, rising high.
Mists of water surround.

 

Fury of color,
Symphony of sound.
Arched, stretched, folded wing.
Heavenward tangent, vector unknown.

 

Glinting sun,
Falling water drops in slow drip motion.
Piercing eyes fixed ahead,
Side by side in symmetry.

 

Effortless progress,
Wind-borne glider.
Where do you go?
And why?


            -Gregory A. Poland
