Carpe Diem's Make the haiku complete #5, ''departing geese''

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy to present you a new episode of "make the haiku complete". I think that I have a nice (tough) challenge for you all.
For this episode I have chosen to challenge you to write a second line towards a given haiku. This time it's really a hard challenge, because writing a second line is more difficult than writing a 1st or 3rd line to complete a haiku. To make it even more difficult ... the second line must be 7 syllables, as is the "rule" for the classic haiku.

Here is the haiku to complete:

full moon of winter
departing geese

Well ... good luck. Have fun, be inspired and share your completed haiku with us all here at our Haiku Kai.
This episode will stay on until January 25th 11.59 AM (CET).

And here is my attempt to complete this haiku, I almost forgot it so therefore it's at the end of the post.

full moon of winter 
completely invisible - 
departing geese
