two low-flying geese
riffle the lake

    What an image! Beyand the visual, the repetition of the l's and f's creates an auditory image. Well done!

    Behind the two geese
    a lost feather flutters...
    Goose's? Gander's?

    crinkly dried leaf
    borne far, on evening crisp breeze--
    bay of the hound
