James 2::3...Sit here under my footstool.

Old trees are interesting not only on top but on the base also.... I found inspiration on my walk in the woods today. I was drawn to the foot of this old Maple Tree...with the leafy vines around it sparkling in the sun. This is where I decided to take my self portrait....

I went for my walk,
Today in the wood.
The old Maple Tree
Did not utter a sound,
But it spoke to me,
When I saw its foot
Firmly planted in the ground.
With leafy vines around.
E'en tho' it did not talk,
Of the divine Lord's
Sermon on the Mount,
I felt the Saviours words
And presence near
In His perfect school
Of thoughts to count.
He taught of life's worth
Starting from our birth,
When He said, "Sit here,
Plant your feet on earth,
Under my foot stool!"
Poetry by me AJP
