Looking At The Geese

The Clackamas River At Clackamette Park

Looking At The Geese

My understanding
left the building long ago.

My loves congregate
like the Canada
Geese that flock in the local
park come running at
the first sign of bread
held in my old cranky hand.

In no time at all
I find reflections
of you in the sleek black shine
of mother goose eyes.

Looking East Up The Clackamas

Clackamette Park is a local park placed on the southeast corner of the confluence of the Clackamas and Willamette Rivers. The bridge shown is the 99E McLoughlin bridge spanning the Clackamas, which is the dividing line between Oregon City and Gladstone, Oregon. At this point the Clackamas runs west to the Willamette while the Willamette flows north to the Columbia situated on the north Oregon border with Washington.

Here's a link that will give you a map, I hope.

You can perhaps go to street view and take a virtual drive of the entire area if you have the patience.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
