Geese over Eliot

Wings etch fine patterns
on the stony morning sky.
Spring’s first lithograph.

  1. Hey, sometimes you just need a haiku, no matter what month it is.

  2. Haikus are alllll year! Especially perfect ones like this one 😀

  3. The morning sky as stone (I’m picturing slate) is such a surprising image.

  4. It does look like a lithograph! Beautiful imagery.
