Silence

 
 I saw a flock of snow geese today, 
flying in a perfect W, 
white with black bands 
against the brilliant blue sky.
I stopped my car on the empty road, 
got out to watch this wondrous sight, 
expecting to hear their raucous honking ~
these geese were as silent as the snow-covered fields 
over which they flew....... 
perfectly....
quiet.
