Stolid

Rainy winter day
Geese stand like statues of geese
On the sodden lawn.

Monochrome

Flat silver river
Smooth as an unstruck nickel
Two gray geese descend.

Stalk

White marble column
Rising above the marsh grass
The egret’s long neck.

Wild Geese III

Cloudless autumn sky
Chevrons of migrating geese
Tattoo the sky’s cheek.

Misty Morning II

Single cormorant
Why do foghorns always sound
Lonely in the dawn?

Lakeside

Two geese flying low
Descend toward their reflections
Evening approaches.

Swans

Quiet winter pond
Swans sail on their reflections
Through the melting ice.
