children plucking grass
gathering flowers for mom
cease at sudden honks
to follow a pair of geese

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Nice words and imagery.


  2. A nice moment in time, just following the geese along. Great capture.

  3. Ah, so sweet.

  4. Makes me remember stories I loved as a kid.

  5. A special moment of mother nature at her finest!

  6. So very sweet. Loved it!

  7. A lovely moment, but geese can turn nasty…

  8. We all look around when someone is honking, don’t we?

  9. The first poem was good. The second poem was great! You write with feeling and a knowledge of the human heart.

  10. Lovely and lilting words but a honk can stop one in mid track!! The sound is most imploring!!

  11. The geese can catch the imagination by just honking! You are then subject to the horror of being chased.


  12. Very coooling poem. I can imagine the scene. Thanks.

  13. So lovely and peaceful it made me smile! Beautiful!

  14. a perfect afternoon delight… dreams of distraction… happiness happens…
