Poetry Corner: Painting a Picture

by Jim Farfaglia

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.
