Coming in for a Landing
Geese visited the hayfied behind Allhaven nearly every day since August.
They are gone now. I've not seen them for nearly two weeks. I miss watching them feed on the hill, but mostly I miss hearing the honking as they fly over the house in romantic, V-shaped formations. There is something heartwarming about geese overhead. They are endearing and enduring, like a 1940s black and white movie about everyone pitching in to help the U.S. war effort.
Here they come!
Geese fly with grace,
but landing is another story. Look out!
They remind me of popping corn. The hugh birds appear to bounce randomly in multiple directions.
There. It is time to settle in, relax and visit.
Until it is time to be head a little farther north.
God Speed, my friends.
