Autumn Watch - Tanka Contest

I listen and watch
the canada geese, fly in
vee shaped formation*
what a beautiful vision
as onto the lake they glide

Penned on November 2nd 2013.

*This is an annual occurrence, so wonderful to see them all fly in.  
Then every day they fly to different water spots and back in the evening to a near by reservoir.

    Where I live is a spot where the Canadian Geese fly over on their way north in the spring and again in the fall head when they head south..I enjoy seeing them and hearing them argue over who is going to have to take the lead..We now have at least one gaggle of Canadian Geese that live here..Enjoyed reading your well thought out work..I could just see the scene..Reads like a winner to me..Thanks for the visit to my page..Sara
