Those fly-away skies

As the sun rises,

The glorious trees glow in the light.

Distance 1.jpg

Geese call to each other;

Their reflections dot the water.

Distance 2.jpg

Peaceful skies return when they disappear.

It’s hard for the sky to compete with autumn

At this time of year.

    Yes, the geese are sure noisy. Makes you wonder if they continuously honk wherever they fly…like they need to talk to each other so they don’t collide in the sky or something? LOL! 😉

  5. Peaceful scene. I wonder if the skies are streaked with contrails from jet traffic . . . or just the remains of stratus clouds.
