God's Little Pond

by louis gander  
8/06/2014 / Testimonies

God's great creation's message is
one word that never moans -
as sounds of water capture me
now flowing over stones.

A stream of endless water smoothed
and brightened every one -
while winding down around a bend
reflecting morning sun.

The little stream just seems to know
exactly where to go.
The clear fresh water trickles on.
I watch it curve and flow.

Between some flowers beautiful
that set on fragile stems,
it finds its way into God's pond
where only man condemns.

Three little ducklings make their way
while mother swims beside.
The water ripples in their wake
across to other side.

Some red-winged blackbirds curtsy when
on cat-tail tops alight.
They sit a-spell while cat-tails bow
and then again take flight.

Under a branch of waving leaves
as I sit here below,
I contemplate serenity
as waters come and go.

The birds are chirping happily
in never ending song -
yet here I sit among the pure,
where I do not belong.

So tranquil God's creation is,
so simple and so frail -
unlike life that I complicate
where I so often fail.

I'm lost inside God's special world
while bright red card'nal sings.
The breeze picks up and starts to blow -
just as my cell phone rings.

But I can't tear myself away.
The ringing, I ignore -
for God has blessed with sights and sounds
and fragrances galore.

Man's evil gaze can take his eyes
off God's creative ways -
but I, for one, will always be
repentant of my days.

I sit among the Butterflies
of which I have grown fond.
They flutter 'round the wild flowers
next to God's little pond.

God's great creation's message is
one word that never moans.
That word is 'peace' so I'm content
now flowing over stones.
