Judge Not—There’s A Time for Everything

The excited butterfly

Shouted at his friend below:

“Fly! Reach for the sky!”

“My time has not yet come”

Said the waiting caterpillar.

Tanka

In its own appointed time, eventually every caterpillar will fly, for it will transform into either a butterfly or a moth.

Perhaps that is the same timing for some people, therefore we should not judge.

To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:…

Eccl. 3:1

“Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

When my flesh groans instead

“Abide in Me” He said

“Wait on Me, do not dread,

Endure pruning’s pain”

Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

Triolet

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:4

The Bench

Bench
I sit here and wait to see

Who will visit me

Maybe a bee

Or leaf fallen from a tree

There is a possiblity

It may be a dignitary

On this bright Spring day

Or a tired child at play

Come what may

Night or day

All are welcome 

Not just some

So whether King or Bum

I don’t care where you’re from

If you’re passing by

Please sit and say “Hi”
