GREY GEESE FLYING


GREY GEESE FLYING

Late afternoon,
The geese only now flying
Over the meadow.

Their faint calls
Barely breaking the silence.

Yet, the cat,
Supposedly sleeping,
Instantly lifts his head.
Dandelion paws
Darting down the garden,
Gold eyes burning
With the desire to fly,
To catch those
Faraway geese

And kill them.
