Gabbing Geese Go Walking (Art & Poetry) by 

Gabbing Geese Go Walking a poem by RestLeSsD

The gabbing geese go walking
On a fine Spring day.
If you care to listen
You might hear one say;

How old Mrs. Vander Honkin
Was late for church again.
And Parson Digby Brown
Told her it was a sin.

Then buzzing Bee McCormick
Was caught stinging Miss Camille
One could hear her honking
As she passed Danika Daffodil.

The jibber jabber is constant,
One can’t get a word in edgewise.
It can get very irritating
And the head aches between the eyes.

Alas, that’s what happens,
When hanging with the geese.
If you don’t wear your earplugs
You will never get any peace. . .

My original photo shot with a Nikon CP8400 in March 2010. A whole gaggle of geese visits us yearly here at the lake and some stay all year. Here was a group out for a walk on a fine Spring day.

Postprocessing in PSCS2 using layers with blending modes & layer masking. Used native & external filters including a subtle Redfield Fractalius layer.
