A TURTLE IN DECEMBER
(2 December 2009 by Carl A. Patton)
Peace be unto you. I looked at a favorite place where a quiet creature that said nothing rested in the sun. When the rains came he relished the mud. Here as the trees and wind were at a tranquil pause we could feel the inherent Wind that begged to speak.
I had to go to my rock enclave
as the rain had stopped its
downpour but still fell in,
Scattered drops. As I leaned back
on the rock wall two trees blocked
my eyes and the log I did not see.
But the log came in sight as I
peeped and of course I had seen
the log by inspiration as part of,
The plan so I need not see it by
sight. I now could write and
feel the breeze that you did not feel.
On this same log many turtles
bathed in the sun during the
green summer time.
This time of year they were
seldom seen. However this
day a lone turtle rested,
Stationary not moving. Once
more than once I see the quiet
animals that know peace.
These same lower creatures
submit to Godís will and rest
Peace and Paradise,
