Feathery Saga

The feather slid out
Of the goose’s wing
Unexpected and yet
Smoothly like a
Book’s page loosed from its binding
See-sawing in the air currents
Fluttering to the ground

What stories are writ here?

Love soaring
In flights high and low
Over streets and streams
Skimming green grasses
And trembling waters

Love making
After the search
Long and slow
For each other
A new chapter

Love hatching
As balls of golden down
Cheeping softly
Music to the mated pair
And the sequel

What story is writ here?
