Mike_Bloomberg

It seems that from the taller trees
Comes presidential timber.
Israel’s first king stood out –
‘Twas Saul, if you remember.

There’s been a run of six foot men
This nation has elected.
If we cannot look up to some,
Those are the ones rejected.

It seems that female chances, then,
Of winning are quite narrow
Since few of them are ostrich tall
And closer to a sparrow.

And same for that short fellow who
Has/spends a lot of money.
If he wore elevator shoes,
His outcome might be sunny.

He might as well go home, recline,
Light cigars with his dollars.
He has to come up taller than
The tall ones’ necks and collars.

As each aspirant’s views are scanned,
Subconsciously we measure
How far into the clouds he stands
To find a redwood treasure.

So looking up to candidates
Is double in its senses.
To come up short in either one
Has highest consequences.

King Saul of Israel – “he was taller than any of the people
from his shoulders upward” (I Sam.10:23)

Caterpillars To Butterflies

In Autumn,
The green leaves become
Bright flowers.

Foot in air –
What is not needed?
Shutter speed.

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Where all dwell
Individually –
God’s spotlight.
