The flight home

English: Greylag Geese (Anser anser) in flight...

 

Beautiful rows of geese

 

Formation flying

 

follow the form

 

Riding in the crease  of wind

 

ridges and rivels from the pair of wings in front

 

Except…

 

Gusts erase the smoothly lined path

 

replaced and misplaced

 

the perfect order and sequence

 

now swirling clusters

 

swooping

 

turning

 

flowing through and around the unseen wake of fate

 

Gathering up and flying on

 

finding

 

wing to wing

 

and all the while,

 

me staring at a vast blue sky,

 

wondering how to go beyond avoiding,

 

and transcend

 

aloft

 

soaring.
