Life-time Partners



Two swans foraging,

Circling together, Staying

Conjoint for always.




This beautiful swan couple was self-immersed and occupied with finding food, when I saw them on my way to the Brunner Peninsula Nature Walk on the South Island of New Zealand on one of my visits.

And I learned WAY back when I read “Trumpet of the Swan” as a younger child – many times!  I loved it so much – that swans mate for life.

I would wonder how their relationship bond develops over all that time and how they manage their togetherness.

I know….I’m looking at it from a human perspective.  Quite different as animals always live in the moment and their beings aren’t fretful with worry and doubt, as we so often can be.

I’m just curious.
