Walking the Fenceline

Walking the Fenceline

February 06, 2019

I met an antelope
In the woods
Him longingly
Walking a fence line
So wanting to be on the other side

I pause, watching…
Big open land just opposite
‘Why don’t you run free– that way?’

He momentarily considers
His other option
Straying off course
But shortly returning
To walking the fence
Not noticing
At the one place
He stepped away
A tree had fallen
And created a pass

I am struck
Deeply with irony
I feel his heart
His absolute yearning to go
‘This way’

I shed a few tears with him
‘Don’t we all know this well?’

He keeps walking
No knowings of ‘failure’

Ten feet from the corner
He stops
Not comprehending
This human construct
‘Oh, oh, please please keep going
You’re almost there’
He ponders
Weighs his options

And once again
Follows the nonnegotiable
Pull of his heart
Passing the corner
He is free!!!

I cry a little more
In joy
Taking in the deep lesson
Of never giving up
On the strong call within
To go a certain way
Even when it appears
To be against all odds…

I had recently graduated from art & design school and for some reason that explosion ‘of needing to express myself in a new way’ came afterwards instead of during.

This statement baffled me for years because I have never been one to fake something (anything for that matter). How could I possibly love something...

Can you imagine a place where there is NO judgement, no hate, no prejudice, no cheating, no harming, no sacrifice…that everyone genuinely cares about the well being of all (including Gaia and all non-human beings)?
