Things (Matthew 6:25-46) (Luke 12:22-34)

There are birds

Eating seeds

From my feeder

There are birds


IN my trees

The birds are singing



Or other hours in between

As I sit in my lawn chair

Pleased with myself

And all I see

My piece of ground

My home

Lord of all I own

Or a vassal

Servant really

Given talents to invest

Given things

Not just to have

But to share

To give my song

As freely as the birds

To chant my thanks

For all he has done

For me

And be ready to fly home

When called

Unencumbered by things
