geeseThe ordinary made extraordinary:

I Went Out Earlier Today

I went out earlier today
the sky was picture book in hue
white fluffy clouds
scattered afar
as though painted by someone who
had only random things to do
an aeroplane so high
it was I deemed
no part of this earth’s richest seam

a skein of geese then came my way
more gainly now than on the ground
their silent wings made not a sound
one group and then one more behind
another still
till morning sky was overwhelmed
shaped troops
harmonising with the wind

I walked along my muddy path
brighter now my way was clear
silently I raised a glass
to geese who made all things less drear
