The Wilderness Within

Basic Instincts

Goslings follow the leader—
waddling after an imprint.
Veed geese fly home
the arctic tern,
the hummingbird,
and bright eyed warblers
fly to their tropical havens.

Lake trout swirl at river mouths
then race upstream.
American eels return from the sea
to freshwater streams.

lobsters march in single file—
they know exactly where
they are going.

And we humans also know
where we are going
God’s green imprint is
upon our hearts.
                           --Barbara Spring

excerpted from my book The Wilderness Within
This book is widely available at Amazon.com, bn.com and many bookstores.
