Stumping For Health Care.

Through the smeared pane

of another day broken

I caught a glimpse

of a tiny caregiver

perched on the stump

of a tree that was not so lucky.

From the hollow of that dead trunk

out sprung a bit of Spring

in black and white

quite formal attire

attending to its offspring

with diligence and dexterity.

I was sorely tempted

to take a peek into that slender

trees hollow but I feared

my very presence might

discourage the mama and pappa bird

from returning to their babes,

and I was not into chewing up

and then regurgitating worms

into four or five gaping maws.

A tedious and seemingly endless task

that goes on for weeks.

till the hatchlings can fly.

So I  simply took a photo

capturing natures finest health care

at work and succeeding

daily amongst us.

There are many who

squabble and whine

about caring for our own species,

prefering to deny the less fortunate

lest we have to work a little harder

to make sure every one is cared for.

God made sure the

birds and the animals

had the means at their disposal

to take care of thier lineage.

 

But man was given freewill

and granted the power

to do right or wrong,...

yet we have chosen to bicker

over who should be cared for

and why we should bother with some,

because it requires a bit more work

the sharing of our resources

and some compassion to make sure

like the birds that every

one of our species

is cared for in the best way possible.

We are far too concerned that we might

lose a little bit of our own nest eggs

when God has shows us daily 

in the beauty

of nature all around us'

the ways and means by which

we should take care of all

who are born into this world.

We become instead like Red Birds

sqwacking at Blue Jays

over who gets a part

of our bountiful nation.

It makes me wonder

What would Jesus do.

He did not discriminate

against any who were sick,

he healed them

and told us all to care for

the elderly and the sick

but we would rather squabble

over the cost of such

compassion and love.

This saddens me.
