Behold the birds of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?.. Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
St. Matthew 6: 26-27

The young male oriole
Added one cubit unto his status..
As he pursued his goal...
Within an forearms length
Of his perch on the lattice,
He renewed his strength...
This wise bird of the air
Who aspires to be shrewd
Knows exactly where
To find his food...
Poetry by me, AJP

Thank you so much JanElle ( Heather) for the spotlight!
