Dexter cows are mooing in the
pasture, the herd of
them snacking on hay and
sloshing aside the slough
where ducks gobble flotsam and
six llamas raise snouts
admiring the surroundings.
Green grass, September's scudding sky
branches within reach, poplar
leaves teasing appetites;
blending animal, earth, sky.
And somewhere up there, God
Not far away donkeys trot in single file,
a horse grazing nearby, two
ruffed grouse strutting proudly, and
an eagle shuffling feathers
accepting thermals lifting this marvelous
creature to greater heights.
Now God has a very large grin as He
travels in a burst of brilliant
light from one creation to another
weaving layers of goodness one

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: email@example.com re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
