      OPEN MOUTHS

      I don't know
      if it's the lengthening light
      or the temperatures arising
      but something has gotten
      a v-shaped flock of geese
      to fly loudly over our house
      right this moment
      Honking to all the world like
      a hundred circus clowns
      We rush outside to witness
      this dispensation of nature
      It looks like the lead bird
      is pulling all the other

      Farther south
      in the bald eagles' nest
      a second chick has just hatched
      One parent gently arranges
      the new comer with a beak
      designed for tearing flesh
      while the other takes off hunting
      with talons not unlike
      two fistfuls of fish hooks
      so the open mouthed chicks
      won't go hungry for long
      An unassuming fish
      swimming now near the surface
      is about to take up flying
