This one of yours caught my eye (being Canadian had almost nothing to do with it). LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I love when the geese return in spring. Alway happy to meet another haiku lover, of any nationality. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I especially love this line: ” scattering magic thoughts” 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks, the first sight of the geese in the spring is always so cheering and sweet, I quite forget what I was thinking. And then in the fall, the arrows flying south is bittersweet, but exciting. The usually leave right before the first snowflakes fall. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Wow! Thanks for sharing this. I live in the city and don’t see this. I understand even more the excitement of seeing them when they return. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I just looked at your site and could not figure out which city.

Cheers, Brenda LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Pingback: The Goose Story | ADD . . . and-so-much-more Hey Brenda — Thanks for taking the time to pop over to ADDandSoMuchMore to read “Top Ten LOUSY Product Designs . . .” (and especially for “liking” it to let me know you’d been there). I came here after Googling you — since the photo-let among the “likes” like jumps to Gravitar — with no live link to your blog. You must add one! Thankfully, I found you easily, right at the top of the list for “friendlyfairytales.” Given how I found you, I was expecting to find a fairy tale once I landed. I was delighted by what I found instead. Ever since I tripped across The Goose Story by Dr. Harry Clarke Noyes, many years ago now, it has been my North Star — so I was thrilled to see the picture and to read the haiku. Always far too wordy for the form, I have written only one (an assignment). It’s not bad, but I’ve never been called to do it again — and especially not after reading the dueling haiku here! The Goose Story is on my blog, if you’re not familiar with it. It is introduced by “About Values and The Goose Story,” which details why it is special to me. The link to the verse is at the bottom of that post. After more than 25 years, it still inspires me to read it. It’s almost dawn and I simply MUST put myself to bed, but I plan to add a link to this post at the bottom of that one as soon as I cross a couple of things off my list otherwise. I’ll ping you when it goes live — or leave a comment, if you don’t have pings enabled. xx, mgh (Madelyn Griffith-Haynie – ADDandSoMuchMore dot com) – ADD Coach Training Field founder; ADD Coaching co-founder – “It takes a village to educate a world!” LikeLike Reply Thanks I will try to come and look after various soccer games.

It’s slightly after 9AM EST – and I’m finally off to bed. So I’ll be back later in the late afternoon to see if your team won 🙂 and whether you liked the Goose Story. xx, mgh LikeLike Reply I love this! as my momma goose decided to build her nest outside my cottage door, she has been setting on it for 6 days now..

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I agree, the loss of poetry would be too sad for words. What a lovely thing to say about my blog keeping it alive and bringing nature to life!! Thank you!
