TROIKU
autumn reflections
as I cross the sun warmed bridge
geese fly south (Bastet)

autumn reflections
the thunder of flapping wings
noisy flock heads south

as I cross the sun warmed bridge
seagull drop clam shell
then swoop down to feast

geese fly south
at the first chill in the winds
enroute to the sun

Inspired by this troiku authored by Bastet :

autumn reflections
as I cross the sun warmed bridge
geese fly south

autumn reflections
old man contemplates winter
under the hot sun

as I cross the sun warmed bridge
ducks laugh downstream
– diving for trout

geese fly south
the noisy swallows have gone
but the blackbird sings
(Bastet)
