Backbone of the sky

The ancient eavesdropper

Backbone of the sky

A flock of geese
arch like a backbone
across the December sky.

        I love starlings in particular, when they fly in groups like that. There are great moving clouds of them here in the fall, and they make the most otherworldly sharps and patterns in flight. Do you have them too? ๐Ÿ™‚
