Thought

Winter visitors welcome here

From Iceland, Greenland, Canada

Touring groups of swan and geese

As numbers joining them increase


Over miles-on-miles formation keep

Nowhere to rest or feed or sleep

Thousands fly with tailwind power

At speeds of seventy miles an hour


Wetlands hotels - feeding grounds

Enjoying rest where grass surrounds

While swallow, martin, swift and tern

Through France to Africa return


If you think this life is chance

You never saw migrations’ dance

Missing wondrous geese in flight

Plans and paths for day and night


If you dismiss bird’s feathery limb

As mere mutation’s random whim

Your aesthetic innate sense is gone

Of divine intelligence in the swan


Prayer

O Lord of beauty and infinite intelligence. Grant me the wisdom that allows my mind to fly to Thee and rest under Thy protective wing. Grant me the gift of letting go and gliding easily from worldly concerns to Thee. Let us fly freely using Thy guiding light and power.
