Flying Free

I came across a picture of a gun dog on my travels and this got me to thinking!! How many of us who are  meat-eaters just see the piece of meat on our plates as a piece of beef or pork or chicken etc. This was again brought home to me as I caught a glimpse of the news about farmers and Pig prices, watching the cute little piglets…

I don’t happen to be a Vegetarian even though I gave up meat for two years in the 90’s I have to admit I wasn’t getting the proper vitamins my body needed and became pale and ill looking so I succumbed to the bacon butty once again.  

My Daughter came on Mother’s Day and has in the last few years gone vegetarian herself and I had to smile as I remember how she used to say to me ‘what are you trying to prove eating meat doesn’t bother me’… What a difference a year or two make..  She is very much into Heath Foods now as she manages a ‘Health Food Store’. And is always bringing my attention to the cruelties of Battery Hens and Poultry kept in appalling conditions and the way woman’s makeup is tested on animal etc, along with converting me to use Eco products.

In recent years films are now being made in which animals are portrayed as having human traits and we see adventures of dogs, cats and mice all be it fantasy, giving us insights into their animal emotions and instincts.

And let’s face it anyone who has ever kept a dog, cat, horse etc will know that they have their own individuality and are full of love and loyalty and have a great awareness of what is going on around them. Anyone dragging their pet to the vets will understand this. Or being greeted with wagging tails after being away from them..will know the Love they have for us..

Ok where is all this leading?….. to a poem..

 

Flying Free.

Last night I had a dream, I was flying oh so high

Wind beneath my wings, alone up in the sky

Oh the joys of living and flying fast and free

To the East I headed, over mountains did I flee.

 

My heart was swiftly beating as higher I did sore

Today I start my journey to end on distant shore.

My mate for life no longer flying by my side.

We tried to fly for cover, but alas we couldn’t hide.

 

A bullet aimed up high, it found its target well.

His cries did echo, as to his death he fell.

A dog did fetch his body to his master’s side.

As beaters beat the bush and came out from their hides.

 

I looked back below as some humans shout ‘Good Show’,

My heart beat ever faster, but my wings began to slow.

The feather’s that held me were now broken and were bent.

And downward did I spiral, my energy all spent.

 

The Earth became a blur, my journey almost done.

The last thing I remember was the Mountain and the Sun.

And then a Light so bright, did fill me with such glee,

As to the East once more I’m bound, my partner flies with me.

 

We flew into the sunset; I know you’ll wish us luck.

For heaven is for all God’s creatures and that includes us Ducks…

By Dreamwalker.
