Only recently did I learn about the theory behind geese flying in v formation.
It’s a great example of teamwork, loyalty and unity to live by.
Science states that the entire flock adds 71% to their flying range when they fly together.
When one falls off for whatever reason, two or three fall off too and keep watch over the fallen one until he is able to fly again.
Meanwhile, other geese replace fallen ones to keep within the v formation.
They are beautiful to look at above the sky.
They fly so swiftly! Gliding seems effortless.
The path wherever destination leads, they clearly own.
I am at an intersection right now feeling ambivalent about direction.
Forward is easy but it’s the turns that confuse me and bog me down.
I wish I had flock to help guide me in my path.
The characters that hover are not the kind that you can identify with like geese.
Life constantly reminds me that I am owed nothing.
It is I that I owe to myself to live fully and live well.
Most things I’ve learned to accept.
Other things I am still learning to embrace.
All in all, I think that I have learned well.
I do wish though that I were part of a flock flying in one direction that I truly know and clearly see that is right for me.
When I am uncertain or fearful, I the fallen one, would have an anchor to assure me of decisions that I have taken to own.
50% at the intersection, now I have to figure out which way would increase my flying range.
