lone goose taking point
companions keeping abreast
in seasonal flight

one bird seems to lead
that winged arc across the sky
none truly follow
reaching their destination
instinct their only compass
With a memory like a sieve, it’s ironic that, at times, once I have a word in my head I can’t get it out. Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge No. 127 – Synonyms Only offers the words
lead and follow. Once I started writing, those words were there to stay,
so consider this a non-response to her prompt.
