I am, somewhat surprisingly (to me, anyway) beginning a series of poetry-written-when-I-hear-the-geese-throughout-my-day.
 Lilac’s Locus

Clouds in contrast,
as night fades...

Hidden in the shadow-dark, underfoot -
astride the windblown crinkle-leaf of
a season ago, a violaceous crocus begins to dream
of the end of the dream-
and the skybowl (soon!) of light.

Cut through the indigo,
a black-fletched line;
one single goose.

Now two.
