Painting a Picture
Thank you, honking geese,
for interrupting the routine of my busyness;
inviting me to lift my eyes from this computer
and witness something greater:
the grace of your V-shaped story line,
the neighbor’s dog leaping for you in chase,
the trees that reach to tickle your bellies
and the clouds that cushion your journey.
All which inspire me, far below,
to frame this moment of beauty,
so it might forever hang
in my memory.
