True Identity?

Stalk of Wheat?--Tanka poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona j. Atkinson ©2015

Today as I was walking on my College Campus going to an appointment with my academic counselor, I happened to look down and noticed this, what I thought to be, stalk of wheat.  Just laying there on the footpath, all by itself, and not a wheat field in sight.  Quite odd, I thought.  I picked it up to take home, quite excited because I had never had the chance to have a stalk of wheat before.:)  But….then I got to thinking about the parable in Matthew 13:24-30 and I began to wonder if it might be a tare…..Something to consider….and to ponder, why it happened to be right in my path today…..??  Perhaps it’s purpose was only to inspire me to write this poem 🙂
