envy the wild geese

in the twilight mist
where they go I cannot see…
I envy the wild geese
only their voices trailing behind

  1. Once again you have paired just the right words to add to the power of your image. It made me go back to your about page to see if you were a professor of literature. Maybe “just” an abundant reader of poetry? 🙂

    1. thank you…didn’t do so well as an undergrad in lit…”just” love the insight, beauty, and contemplation that arises in conjunction with poetry.
