Cautious steps


Here another infrequent visitor to our garden that I have been keen to catch in my camera frame for quite some time.

Blue Eyes 

From magnolia canopy
a jewel bright eye
looking

then branch to branch
blue-black bower bird
hopping

to the edge of the pond
bending and sipping
drinking.

Using the same path
a brown cuckoo dove
resting

on a high branch
then lower and lower
edging

to the cool pool,
cool blue eyes
watching.


Reflection:
Psalm 37:23-24New International Version (NIV)
 "The Lord makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in him;
though he may stumble, he will not fall,
for the Lord upholds him with his hand."
