Everyday Art: my neighbouring geese

I watch the geese...
they see me...

they relax...

and preen... 

I like birds of every kind.
Birds remind me of our souls.
They are free to move between earth and sky
that is why
I like birds to be free.
One of my favourite birds is geese.
They symbolize migration
and know their direction. 
They are water birds.
Water is the age old symbol 
of the psyche's unconscious and emotion.
When they call
it is as if they reach deep into my heart;
and my soul 
echoes back in humble response 
to the knowledge that we all 
are part of nature created by the Great Designer. 
I am grateful that I am free.

These are Egyptian geese.
