A Field...


A Field.
You drive by, 
Barely noticing it.
Because it doesn't really
Stand out to you.
Just grass.
And lots of it.
But if you walked through that field,
Stood right in the middle of it,
Stayed there,
For a year.
You'd notice things.
Things you'd never seen
Or thought of before.
In the Winter,
The frozen ground
Is hard and cold.
Snow falls, and
Chill winds blow.
Spring comes.
Blue sky stretches
Over the wet,
Thawing ground.
Green grass is
Pushing up,
Into the early sunshine.
Flowers blossom,
Reds, Purples, Yellows,
Pinks, and Oranges.
Bees go from flower to flower.
A soft breeze blows.
Under a clump 
Of grass,
Hiding in a nest,
Are five baby bunnies.
They sleep peacefully,
Snuggled together.
The year progresses.
The baby bunnies leave the nest,
To explore the great, wide world.
Summer Arrives.  
The grass is
Tall and green.
It waves gently
In the hot, sticky wind.
The sun glares down brightly.
Butterflies flutter lazily,
To and fro.
The ground becomes hard and dry,
And then rain comes.
Softly falling,
Refreshing everything. 
The field turns
Gold, instead of green.
The air chills.
Autumn is here.
Goldenrod sways gently
In the wind 
That will soon bring
Freezing temperatures.
Squirrels scurry back and forth,
Hiding acorns and other things,
Storing up for long cold months.
Then one morning,
Snow falls.
Lightly dusting
The cold ground.
And, just like that,
Winter is here.
Again.
One year.
One field.
Many things.
Beautiful things. 
Proof.
Proof that nothing,
Nothing on this earth
Is common or ordinary.
It's all made by Him,
Our God,
All-Powerful and the Creator of all things.
Everything, every little thing,
Is His handiwork.
Even one small field.
