Visited the lake today with my ever ready walking pal
Saw gatherings of floating geese savoring early morning joy 
With eminent elegant black necks and heads with striking white cheeks
They were dabbling in shallow waters with heads dipped down for a morning feed
Swaying in a long line in a playful manner
I saw many pairs enjoying squawking, honking and flapping with an amusing demeanor 
Light colored breasts and dark brown feathers 
Drawn-out curved necks and webbed feet bottoms 
Socializing with bobbing necks while making spherical breakers
They looked absolutely dazzling frolicking and whirling in the lake waters
I enjoyed the scene while playing fetch with my lab
Was glad to see that her swimming and fetching didn’t disturb them at all
Being compliant, they moved away a little from the shore
Giving the lab some room to carry on the game that she adores
They kept relishing twirling in the lake showing their cooperative communication
Teaching me about important family values of love, care and compassion

I am captivated by your vivid imagery, Smita. The message that we can live in harmony together comes across clearly...the endline also makes an impact. ~ Best regards // paul
