A Balancing Act

After a backwards
hard tumble
across a fallen
bough I planned
to sit upon
I contemplated
the possibility of
a harsh arrest.
And It did indeed
come about
with a forceful
thump. Thankfully
only my hand felt a
sharp stab of
piercing branch.

As I lay fully stretched,
clouds above peeked
through layers
of Autumn leaves.
These trembling aspen
reflecting Godís
gift to me, and all within
the comfort of His
cherished Blessing.
