watching fences steal a meadow
through my window's view
immobilized in quietude
by water, grass or snow

this death has as mourners
 geese sounding their loud horns
become disoriented standing
on what was ancestors wetlands

a constant funeral
of small animals 
who flew or hopped or walked
now too few for owl or hawk
to consider hunting
