wild geese

wild geese

i did not see them coming
a hundred geese
scraping the hill top
filling the world
with flight
and perhaps
i breathed their flying
their dark heavy shapes
heading home
beyond the trees
until again
i was alone
with nothing
but the sound
of their wings
between myself
and the evening star.
