Nature’s Beautiful Chaos

Snow Geese

The sun has just hinted it’s going to appear over the horizon when the calm and quiet is shattered with a sonic boom of flapping wings! The Snow Geese who had just landed in the pond just minutes before had barely begun to mill around before lifting off again in an explosion of life. In fact, that’s what I’ve come to call it, an explosion as that best describes the chaos that seems to insue. One has to wonder how there aren’t a bunch of casualties left from midair collisions as a thousand Snow Geese dash for the heavens in less than a second! Within a heartbeat or two, the geese in all that chaos have a path up and out. They form up their flocks to fly to their next destination. The sight and sound have drawn me back to Bosque for nearly forty years, it’s a spectacular wonder that is brand new every time I witness it. It brings warmth back to the heart and soul, nature’s beautiful chaos!
