North versus South – A Tanka

North versus South

Northern Fall foliage
Resplendent colors of gold
Canadian Geese
Heading Southbound for winter
Where green palm trees fan hot air
Coldness forgotten

      You can’t blame them. I wonder how many human snowbirds we will get this year considering the virus. 😕

    Christine… I think I saw this flock flying overhead this morning. How splendid. You captured the perfect scene. <3
