The geese are standing there
just being geese in the grass
poking through the leaves
going deeper for nourishment
may I follow their example

I really like poems that juxtapose/compare some animals to humans. A well worded incentive for all of us to go deeper.

Love the simplicity of this and I love geese, so win-win. They do know how to find tasty morsels. I was reading just this morning an essay about using this new year to Go deeper, not Wider for a full year, meaning to look at and explore what we already have instead of looking/buying more and more.

There is a simple reverence to this piece. Inspiring !
