Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Broken GPS

on October 9, 2016

Geese fly overhead
Honking autumn ritual
Nature’s sure bequest

Geese fly by again
Making circle back to pond
Now their year-round home

Ghost of memory
Inner compass says go South
Geese forgot the way

    Glad to hear it. Thanks.

  2. I woke up to the honk of geese today. Love the way you reference the season and then make me laugh with the conclusion!

    Sounds like geese may have “senior moments”, too, though the fact that they’ve lived there full time more likely implies that they’re comfortable there, like you.
