Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

200px-Cardinal

To find about more about the cardinal, click on the link below the picture.

This is not the cardinal I saw in my back yard. My cardinal flew away while I searched for my camera. How many things that we want disappear when we take our focus off of them? Perhaps our focus is misplaced?


I saw the prettiest red cardinal I'd ever seen
The red so bright it seemed like a dream
Several yards away he perched peering at me
Just as pretty as he could be

I searched for my camera, averted my eyes
Wanting this picture, oh what a prize
I turned it on quickly, my eyes looking back
But there's something missing - something I lack

My little cardinal took off out of sight
Disappearing into the night.....
How many times have I lost my focus
Interested in some hocus pocus

Our heavenly father wants to stay in our view
And be our companion in all we say and do.
No camera is needed, just a heart full of prayer
And when  we close our eyes, He'll still be there.

I really enjoyed your poem, Judy. The bird in the pic is really beautiful and such a bright color.

I wish I could say I took it. lol Cardinals are amazing, but strange thing, I like my starlings better.

Thanks, CA for your visit. Take care & God bless.

Love your poem Judy. The little birds can be very elusive but eventually they will pose for the camera.

Judy, I'll keep trying. I keep feeding them, but the squirrels seem to rule the roost here, and they won't pose either. Could it be my cats peering at them through the windows? :-)
