ODE to a GOOSE

Where are you headed now? 
What lies ahead?
as you beat wing with breath
your loud, clear call
alerts this sleeping world of man
to the passage of time

What do you most hope for?
Wherein lies your dream?
as you soar over land 
your bird’s eye view takes in
both the intimately familiar and 
the wholly unknown

We are all migratory
some search and yearn
Others are carried by the winds
merely floating by as if on sea 
of continuous stretch of seaweed

I reach to grasp a tether 
ribbon trailing from your connection
with the heavens
and wish along with you
for all that lies ahead
