Geese Fly Over the Portland Road 2000 1333 Beth Brooke

The geese flew today:
a vanguard of winter.
Like a plough turning the soil,
their skein furrowed the sky;
wings plunging through the air,
pulled up and away from me.
Although the sky was still blue,
still streaked with the soft orange
of an early morning sun,
the sight reminded me that
the season of our growing together
is over, and the harvest done.
