 ~ Surely Curious ~

I wandered along the sandy shore,
Within the spray, the ocean roar,
Safe from it's wild ferocity,
In the rugged reef, so rough,
In environment, so tough,
I spied things of curiosity.

Within the rocky pools I find,
Creatures with unique design,
Submitting to their Creator's law,
Doing what they're made to do,
Not seeking after something new,
Performing what they're purposed for.

The tentacles of the anemone
Waving in the shallow sea
Serenely placed on a sandy spot,
Grasp for that passing feel
To calmly enfold a meal
Then satisfied, so blissfully unlock.

If we stay open just like that,
We find goodness in our habitat,
Instead, we close up fearing pain,
And push away another's love,
But in giving them the shove,
We forfeit so much gain.

Clam shells litter everywhere,
Lots of food they freely share,
Suckers, cleaning as they go,
Bound together in a pack..
Advancing army on attack..
A big green slimy lawn to mow.

Can we that placid be,
Accepting what we see,
With God's shell of protection
We can share all that we've got,
Be happy with our lot,
And not crave much recognition.

In one pool, deep and round,
This clique of crabs I found,
Just one big family group,
Grandies and tinies altogether
Roughing out all kinds of weather,
No-one forced to fly the coop.

So I mused about a happy home,
Where no-one needs to roam,
How God puts us in a household,
So we can be as one
In the struggles and the fun,
None are left out in the cold.

I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease
and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for,
 to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing.
 It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.
