Follow the leader

geese flying in formation

On a cloudless day,
Under an unlimited ceiling,
A skein flew in perfect formation

Strafing the shorebirds with taunts
From their lofty height,
Flaunting their superior aerial agility

  1. the other day, under a dark gray sky, we were driving home and there was a flock of seagulls (HA!) bright WHITE against the sky and the boys were just riveted as they changed positions and leadership to make the V.
    It was as beautiful as your words.
