"They are Free"

Hi everyone,

It has been so very stormy. I have had a lot of time to think. For some reason big rain storms help me think- a lot.

I have been dreaming about my new friends, that have been visiting my yard every day. I have been getting excited about all the fun that I will be having this summer. And now I am especially excited since my friends live here, in my own yard- well you know,,, I am excited!
Wouldn't you be?
And, I am positive that you know what its like to get so excited, that you just can't stand it!

Yesterday, I was in my yard, sniffing the flowers after the big rain storm. I saw this little butter fly, that came floating over to me.

I sat down for a minute to look at her pretty colors. I started telling her about my excitment, when she floated over and landed on my tail. I was not expecitng this, but she spoke to me. She softly said, "but their free- Tweedles". What do those word mean?

I decided to search the yard for my new friend. I peeked under a bush, and there was Gabby sleeping in the green bushes. It was a little hard to see her because of her spots. Gabby did not move a hair as she slept. However, her eye was looking at me, and then she got up and stretched.

Gabby stuck her nose up in the air, sniffed and then waundered over to her mama.
I guess it was lunch time for her. I was just in time to see this.

Little Gabby and mama deer, walked around in the yard with me. I told them how excited I was because they moved into my yard, and we could play, every day.

As I walked down the path smelling more flowers, I heard buzz, buzz, buzz. As I turned to see who was buizzing, over my shoulder. I looked with my big eyes, and I saw this honey bee. The bee said to me "but their free, Tweedles".

I looked over at Gabby and mama deer. They were running like wild horses in the yard. Those words kept coming back into my head "but their free".

And then they stopped, and turned their heads around to look at me. Do you want to come with us Tweedles?

I sat down, and looked and then I said, "No, I live here. This is my home, I want to stay here with with my moms. You were born to be free, so go on your way and have a good time."

Gabby looked one more time at me, and said "Well see you later". "Mama deer is going to teach me about being "Free".

I was sad, as you might guess. But, I know if they come back- then it was ment to be.
I will let them be free- just like the butterfly and the bee.
Will I find the answer in what it means to be free? Maybe in my journeys, I will find out.
Nitey nite my friends,

Great story, Tweedles. It is wonderful for some animals to be free in the way your little yard friends. But freedom for you is different because you have someone to love and take care of you so you won't get hurt out in the big world on your own.

Happy Sunday, the OP Pack

Uhh hello Tweeds, nice story it made me cry. I remember the days, months when I wasn't free and lonely stuck in a small blue cage. But now, I'm with AL I can do all the things that I like, I can lie and roll on the grass, chase birds, ran around the yard until I got exhausted. I'm happy. I'm totally free!

Tweedles, it was very brave of you to let them go on their way, but I am sure you did the right thing. Our Moms need us as much as we need them. I sometimes get visitors like yours in the winter in our back yard but there are many of them and Mom won't let me play with them. You are lucky.

licks and sniffs, Sasha
p.s. Mom says you are sooooo cute!

Wow...Tweedles...neat pictures. Stinkyfeet here. It's 103 here in Texas and NO RAIN. Send us some. I've been soooo busy trying to make THE SHACK inhabitable, I haven't done much visiting. Pokey and TB have just been laying around trying to stay cool. We'll be back shortly...send us some rain...and a bit of AC.

Okay Tweedles! Your terrific poem is featured on my blog. Now all we need is some of your friends to stop by and share their creativity just like you did.

Thank you for helping me let writers know that writing is not's fun! Somehow, I just knew that animal lovers could be creative quite naturally. You take the cake, Tweedles! I linked back to you.

WOW cool yard! The Girl says I look like Gabby. Her Grandma has deer in her yard, they stare at me. It makes me scared.

Tee said...

Wow Tweedles! What beautiful friends you have! And what a great home you have ... we've never even seen a flower like that ... what kind of flower is that?
