single large grey bird walking

There was a single large grey bird
Walking around in my back yard
Aimlessly
What is the matter, I asked him
He said well
I was flying with the group
And got distracted by a
Rather beautiful sea bird
I don’t know where they are now, he said
So I told him that earlier that morning
I had seen a “vee” of birds flying overhead
And there was definitely an empty spot in the formation
That was where I should have been, he said sadly
We thought about things in silence for a moment
Then I looked at him and said
But, you do know the way, don’t you
He lifted his head up toward the sky
Well, yes I do know the way, he said
He looked at me for another moment 
Stretched his wings once
And flew away.
