Poems By Bob Bradshaw
Flight of Geese

Others have the quickness
of a gecko. The beauty
of a rainbow trout.

I am a broken down samurai,
knees gone.

Others admire the flight of falcons.
I admire the unexpected lift of geese,
heavy bellied, a couple

against all odds, without care
of appearance

rising together awkwardly,
honking out of all proportion

as if blowing the phlegm
from their asthmatic chests,

the joy of an old couple

flying together
 

Bob Bradshaw lives in California, and admires both the Rolling Stones and easy times. Mick may not be gathering moss, but Bob dreams of retiring to a hammock. Recent work of his can be found at Boston Literary Magazine, Orange Room Review, Eclectica and Pedestal Magazine.
