Inefficient: Young in the World

geese drinking water in strawberry park april 24

Inefficient in the beginning

the young goslings make their way

learning to survive

on this beautiful day

 

Drinking from the puddle

waddling in the mud

playing with each other

landing with a thud

 

The lessons come

learning to fly and swim

filled with fun and fear

nothing on a whim

 

There are spectators

cheering as they go

filled with laughter

going with the flow

 

The time has come

to leave the nest

having learned to survive

life is the test

 

It is a new day

the geese are now grown

taking what they have learned

into the unknown
