Sympathize: Ode to a Bug

blue bug 2 petrified forest april 14

Tiny blue bug

I sympathize with your plight

living in the woods

trying to stay out of sight


Your life serves a purpose

eating the decay

scurrying across the forest

progressing without delay


The beautiful blue color

shining in the sunlight

blending into the foliage

security until the night


There are predators around

searching in tight spots

looking for a hearty meal

this could be your lot


Continuously moving

seeming not to care

there is a life to be lived

each moment to be aware


A beautiful creature

living in God’s creation

going about his life

without hesitation
