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
