Looking Out

The slate waters reflect
The ashen clouds that
Threaten colder days ahead,
That make joints ache.

A single goose, lost,
Apart from his flock,
Alone and forlorn, trudging
Along the shoreline, dejected.

The sun sets, silhouetting
Tree and building in
Triumphal blaze of red,
Tangerine and yellow sunfire.
