Sunday's Thoughts

"Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed. Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well.
Then the dust will return to the earth as it was. And the spirit will return to God who gave it.
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man's all.
For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil." Ecclesiastes 12:6-7, 13-14 NKJ

The Peacock

The Peacock cries,
he doesn't quack,
or coo,
or say, "Tu-whit, tu-whoo!"
He cries--
a loud sorrow--so desolate,
the air shrinks back
to make space for it.

But if,
as he unfolds his emerald fan,
his feathers turned
as common as a wren's,
would he be free of his
parading strut,
and maybe--
make a
Heart to Heart
