Midnight Goose


Calling in the distant

Forgotten by day
Alone in the night

No one to cheer
Crescent Moon

Sparking  a glimmer
Off a distant pond
Miles ahead

Miles to go

Strange shapes clutching
Every breath

Sounding alarm 
Every tenth stroke

Hoping for response

    This goose needs a mate to go with him. He sounds so lonesome and your poem makes me feel sad.
