“Reaching V” occurs when geese find perfect formation -- riding on air, sharing leadership, and honking encouragement on the journey. These poems explore moments of epiphany, when, like a skein of geese, things align. They investigate moments when supports crumble, and new patterns must emerge. They seek the spark in the ordinary, meaning in loss, and circle back to nature.
Look and you might see the farmer, his pails set down, gazing up at the arrowhead flight-pattern of geese -- the precision-point leader heading two lines in his wake.
