Watching and Waiting
On fluffy snow covered branch
silhouetted against the grey sky
the falcon waits, waits, and watches
Watching for what - a mouse, a squirrel.....
Under a snow covered overpass
a stranger sits shivering in the cold
he too, waiting, waiting, watching
Waiting for what - a tossed coin or cold brown bag.....
The Creator watches - watches
both the small bird and the vagrant
unseen, unrecognized, he watches and waits
Waits for what - strangers, Samaritans, disciples......
