Milt, nice imagery in your haiku, it's always a pleasant surprise for me when I see Canadian geese fly in that formation.

Yes, it is, especially in my part of the country. But, other birds, I have observed, also fly in that formation. I have often wondered how they get together and decide where they are going! (chuckling)

A sure sign winter is coming, we all look forward to their return. Tom

They fly away shaped like a boomerang and return to where they started. Your clever poem made me think, Milt. I enjoyed reading it; thank you, Take care, Shirley
