Maybe it is nothing,
just geese heading South.
Or it may be a miracle.
How did it come to be
this seasonal ritual?
Why the first bird
and certainly why others
would follow?
Was it all by chance?
Can purpose be random?
I do not have the fervor
of religious certainty,
the confidence
of scientific calculation.
I can only wonder
if the universe knows
what it is doing
after all.
