    Enjoyed the usage.... 'Resounding claxons' to denote the sound produced by the migrating geese! Beautiful Haiku! (Report) Reply

    I really wanted to say honking as differently as I could. Thanks, Valsa

    Many flocks fly across the skies above me this time of year. Always fun to watch

    I like it when they fly right over, low and quiet and for a moment you can hear the wind rushing over their feathers as they flap to gain altitude. Your haiku has a great beginning, a postcard middle, and an ending that puts the reader right smack dab in the thick of things. What more can someone ask for? (Report) Reply

    Thanks, Brian. A flock flew overhead at a low altitude as I was talking with a young friend. We could not hear each other til they passed

    It's true they make more noise,
    Than the horn of an old car,
    But the belief is that they're guided,
    By some migratory star,
    Like I think most poets are.

    You're poems Kelly, always stir up imagination and make us think

    The geese actually migrate to Rochester because we have a lake unnaturally heated by a power plant. They actually changed their migration pattern to winter here... and they're arriving now! (Report) Reply

    Enjoy their company. : -)

    Geese migrate with wonderful vision as you clearly draw wise imagery here. Very interesting sharing done., , ,10 (Report) Reply
