geese flying

digging holes
i hit a rock --
the sound of geese overhead

funny, but i remember writing a haiku with geese a number of years ago...but i don't remember how it went.

here, i was digging holes for two rather large hydrangea bushes. i was tired and wanting to stop, but i kept going. i hit a rock, and as i did, i heard a flock of geese fly overhead...the alternate honking of the various members of the group. i didn't see them though. i wondered what their "v" looked like...sometimes they are pretty well formed, and sometimes they aren't all together.

Hi John,
What is the feeling you got when you were writing this -ie the connection between the 1st 2 lines and the last?

it does seem a bit random, the juxtaposition.

the feeling was that here i'm doing a drudgery with digging these holes, then i get stopped by a rock, which is a pain, but the sound of geese always makes me happy. there must be something other than the sound then...
