Whitened Wings

geese in winter

Every day the elderly man across the street
drags a large bag of feed
to his back yard by the creek

As he spreads the feed,
geese honk their excitement,
wings opened,
eager for this easy meal

Today, their raised wings
reflect the deep snow below their feet;
costumed with these whitened wings,
they look like angels proclaiming
thank you, thank you, thank you
