Spending time with the crazy, joyful turkeys this morning. They’ve been put into a new paddock alongside my driveway- have to use all the space out here that I can! I am preparing myself for their harvest coming up at the end of June. However, everyday I have with them is enjoyed so much.
This poem is very special to me, an excerpt from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet:
When you kill a beast say to him in your heart,
“By the same power that slays you, I too too am slain; and I too shall be consumed.
For the law that delivered you into my hand shall deliver me into a mightier hand.
Your blood and my blood is naught but the sap that feeds the tree of heaven.”
