I am joining Donna at By His Grace Alone again this week for Wednesday Poetry Corner. I am so out of practice at writing, but have found I still enjoy it. I hope you will drop in on Donna and join us in this meme each week. Below is my submission for this week.
I was so consumed by his playful abandon.
I laughed as he scampered about from tree to tree,
Worrying not about who was looking or what was about.
I watched for a long while and began to think
This little squirrel is so abandoned in his task.
He's not worried about anything -
Just moving from one step to the next.
The longer I watched the more I enjoyed what I saw.
I laughed out loud at some of his antics while he played.
I thought this must be what God feels like when He watches me,
When I trust Him completely and let myself be free.
I learned a lesson from that tiny squirrel today;
A lesson of life that I can remember, I pray.
I don't have to worry about the things I choose,
God is taking care of me and that's all I need.
