"If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans" ~ James Herriot

 “I think I could turn and
live with the animals,
they are so placid and self contained;

;Unusual Animal Friends Gallery

I stand and look at them
 long and long.

Unusual Animal Friends Gallery

They do not sweat and whine about
 their condition;

Unusual Animal Friends Gallery

They do not lie awake in the dark and
weep for their sins;Unusual Animal Friends Gallery
They do not make me sick discussing
 their duty to God;


Unusual Animal Friends Gallery

Not one is dissatisfied-not one is
 demented with the mania of
owning things;


Unusual Animal Friends Gallery

Not one kneels to another, nor his
 kind that lived thousands of years ago;


Unusual Animal Friends Gallery


Not one is responsible or industrious
 over the whole earth.”

P.S:
This poem by Walt Whitman is one of my all time favourites.
I am extremely grateful I came across his collection of poems 'Leaves Of Grass' three decades ago.
I am also very grateful to Forkparty(www.forkparty.com) for these awesome pictures.
We are supposed to be the best of all God's creations......yet there is so much we need to learn about life and living from animals.................
things that we seem to have forgotten.
If one is willing to learn....lessons come from EVERYWHERE and animals are such amazing teachers.
Let's choose to make it a day of getting back to basics:)
Namaste,
Bhagya
