Dear Canadian Geese,

I think you are both amazing and beautiful. Inside and out.

I love to watch you fly in your V formation. Your front and side leaders have the hardest job, taking the brunt of the weather up there, but it’s just amazing how you  rotate leaders every so often, the leader falling back when tired, probably so he can rejuvenate a bit while the whole flock continues to fly. The other day, I found out that you can cover 1,500 miles in 24 hours if you want to! You even have designated rest stops in your travels! And I love how I can hear you call to each other, from clucks to loud calls. 

V-formation

Your V formation helps you keep track of every bird in the flock. And when one of you goose goes down, two other ones go down with it and stay with the one who had to go down until it dies or has strength enough to fly again. Then the three of you try to catch up with your flock, or you go ahead and join another flock.

Watching you and learning about you gives me a sense of awe. How did you learn these social skills? They say that it is instinct, but how did that even get written in your DNA? My heart and mind stand in awe of our mutual Maker, dear Geese.

And I realize that I have much to learn from you and probably from every living thing that He created. It is as though He deposited little hints of Himself in each of His creations, crafting them with so much wisdom and love.

Dear Canadian Geese,

Thank you for all that you are to me,

Barbara
