Freedom Call

Freedom Calls

 IMGP7369 a

A simple call by a bird so small

A pure and honest call, a song to the marsh,

after a thousand mile flight, in a land so harsh.

No things belonging to, no debts, no obligations due

Pure and simple and owing not

A pure freedom we seem to have forgot

So what will you choose?

Have you been there, will you go?

Can you pay the price of this freedom?

Is it strong enough in you, do you know?

If it is, I will be out there, somewhere

I will greet you as a friend, in your freedom day

And from all the trappings, we will fly away

A song of freedom calls

    Freedom … YES, I like freedom ! perhaps the greatest word in this world and the most important of all … as long as anyone\’s freedom does not infringe on anyone else\’s …
    High up there in Alaska I think that your freedom is no "problem" to anyone ! Not to me anyway …
    Thanks for the nice pictures and the poem as well !

    Hey Steve, I love these images. You are very gifted . Have you ever done a Photography Book? If not, Why not? I am sorry, I haven\’t had the time to read your earlier blogs but hope to in the next little while. Maybe that would have answered my question. Take care, Dianne
