TITLE: Places as Different, As Different Can Be

A spider builds her feather plume
Intricately weaves with silken thread
Her home so uncannily winding spreads
Waiting for the precise moment in the day,
To feast upon her insect prey.
On the fringe of the pond’s bank,
Lays a forest of logs, dark and dank
Below the water and root-bound clumps of soil,
Appears the entrance of the beaver’s toil
Warm and safe in her family’s lodge
Tucked away from nature’s hodgepodge.
During the light, inside a tree hallow,
Comfortably roosts a Barn Owl
Shelters from the wind and rain,
Until the darkness and moon take reign
Hunts closely to the ground,
Catching a mouse with the slightest of sound.
On the back of the turtle sits its shell,
A permanent home in which it dwells
Lumbering along the sandy beach,
Close to the water, it’s nest, not out of reach,
Then back to riding currents in the ocean
Gliding around with fluid motion.
So in a room or underground,
God’s creatures have many places to be found;
Tucked in a tree trunk or under a shell,
Just more places His creatures dwell
Some live in the Arctic or under the sea,
Places as different as different can be.
O Lord, how manifold are your works!
In wisdom have you made them all;
Here is the sea, great and wide,
which teems with creatures innumerable,
living things both small and great.
Psalm 104:24-25 (ESV)
