even on this frigid
first day of the new year
divinity is streaming
through the pale blue sky
a thousand feet above where
it is much colder
(it increases their lift)
long strings of geese
are flying wave after wave
healthy and strong
certain of their place
in the air and on earth
born along by the freedom
of unfailing knowledge
in rhythm with all
that sails beneath their wings
