I see the flight

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    I have already seen the geese flying south for their winter vacation, although why they need a winter home when we live here in North Carolina I don’t understand.
    Today, I can watch what’s left of Ian as it blows by and weakens. Nothing substantial here, thank God.
    Prayers for all those in Florida especially, but for all those affected by this storm.

    • We have plenty of Canada geese in Ohio and many of them stick around throughout the winter despite the cold and snow. We see them practicing (Veeing-up) for a long flight south, but I don’t know how many actually leave. Maybe because of immigration issues, they can’t return to their native land to the north (joking a bit here).
      I hope you don’t get hit with Ian, JC. It still seems like a pretty fierce storm with predictions to return to a Cat 3 hurricane as it goes up the east coast. Florida, especially Fort Myers, sure got hit with wind, rain, and storm surge. I hope and pray no one else has to deal with that. ~nan

    I wish I could have seen more monarchs this past summer…
    I did see one last Sunday at the field hockey sports area where my one grand was having a game…

    • I have seen several, or maybe just one, that flew around our wildflower garden this summer, but it/they was/were frequent visitor(s). Rob found one on the driveway that had died, and he is considering making a box to view it as it is in pretty good shape. The one from my haiku seemed to be following us and it was the shadow that alerted me to its presence.

      How did the game go? Did your grand enjoy playing?

        I think that framing the Monarch would be an honorable tribute. I’d like to believe that ‘it’ had laid some eggs that survived to migrate. 🙂

        The game got rained out…
        Leftovers from Ian… several days of rain…
        We have been to two – youth sports can be a good thing.

  3. That’s a nice way to think about framing…a tribute.

    Too bad about the rain out. We basically only got lots of clouds out of Ian. Maybe next time the game will go on.
