(a beautiful spotted cottontail who lives in our yard / Julie Cook / 2015)

What are you pondering my sweetly spotted friend
As you sit softly gazing upon the meadow’s tender green?
Are your thoughts of wonder grand or are they thoughts of woe?
Do you fret for a future of which we simply do not know?

Do you bask in the gracious gift of an everlasting peace?
As you sit so still and quiet wrapped serenely in freedom’s release.

As the brightly radiant sun warms your soft and speckled fur. . .
What tiny marvelous wonders do your keen senses now incur?

What wisdom do you wish to impart that I may take with me this day?
Only this oh fretful child is all I have to say. . .

That despite your heavy sadness, despite your doubts and fears
It is God who sits in glory who wipes away your tears. . .

    Even in the hustle and bustle of the busy area where I live, we have little bunnies who dwell with us. They are a delight! Now the raccoons are not as welcome as their little hands can make spaces for entering into attics and causing much havoc. Thanks for sharing the photos and thoughts of your little spotted friend!

  2. Love your photos!! we don’t have many rabbits on the mountain due to the red fox, gray fox and coyotes!! I miss seeing them. I saw a red fox just last week that had found a box turtle, he was trying to eat but he did not have much luck! 🙂

    • I just love seeing them—and I didn’t realize he had spots till I zoomed him in on the camera–Brenton said he saw a bobcat running through the yard the other day which troubled me with Peaches going in and out—but I keep a pretty watchful eye on her when she’s out and oddly for a cat, she is not one to roam but prefers staying close–thank goodness—
      I just love seeing the animals—the gentle along with the predator. . .
      hugs Michael
