wild geese move
within the moments of their destiny
framing patterns struck
upon a naked sky.
clocked by indiscreet motions
in gentler waves
confirmed in their geesehood
they soar with speed
amid the chastening winds
and luring skies.
dressed in their celestial garb,
melding motive and design
toward a destiny disclosed.
in a moment
they can do
what in a lifetime

Quite lovely…a perfect melding of photo and word, and nothing, in either, is extra.
Love the flow of your miraculous words! You truly have a gift…. as graceful as the flight of the geese…Love You
