Every October
when geese lift
from summer ponds
my world leaves too,
and I am helpless in this.
I hold the same V-lines
in the palm of my hand
and someday, I will go too
and be with them.
I am helpless in this.

You say all you must to create a marvelous poem however the two short verses seemed abrupt--which takes nothing away from the poem itself but gave me a sense of urgency--which I certainly hope was NOT intentional. Love it! =)

This reminds me of the leaves I saw today.  Screaming both in color and in the wind as it blew by.  Nice one. aaron

I know the feeling, Roger...I always get an empty feeling in my gut whenever I see those geese heading south..I like the V-shaped lifeline reference...One thing about life...It seldomly has a happy ending...len

 Breathtaking work and ever so poignant, Roger.

Kind regards,

I hold the same V-lines

in the palm of my hand

and someday, I will go too

and be with them.

I am helpless in this.
