Sins of the mother -- Bits of Inspiration, Keyhole poem

[click on picture twice for largest view]...
There she lived

There she lived beneath the bells
Had her toys, they brought her meals

Only view was through the star
At first she cried, Mama, come

Mama couldn't come, away
For ten years, away and gone 

She learned of life through the grill
Seeing things no one could dream
Waiting for someone to come
Love her, take her to their home

Someday will come, until then
She'd do her time like her mom

Sins of the mother visit
Daughter in loneliness pays

Grazing ~~ a Tuesday Platform Poem

Southern Cattle Grazing

They nibble, take a bite here and again
Going down by the slough, green and grassy
They'll stop, something substantial for the cud
Southern cows, babies in tow, males clumped

Happier today, fresh pasture beckons
Carry their plate, it would be very full
Mention food and they'll come from miles and miles
Southern Baptist cattle, they like to eat

Bibles are on chairs saving their places
Younger ones, a few older, have iPads
Dollar for the plate, quarters for kids
Preacher gets paid, tells their sins, Bible says

Another bite, piece of cake, coffee calls
They've grazed enough, tummies full, chew their cud
Listen to the preacher, God hating sin
Sing songs, praise the Lord, Jesus in their hearts

Do we think all cows will go to Heaven?

 - I'm linked with Kerry O'Conner at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, The Tuesday Platform, which on Tuesdays is an open forum.

 - Bottom pictures were taken 1-24-2016 at the Second Baptist Church, Houston, FM 1463 Campus (link) where we had our annual "Great Big Breakfast."  Turnout was great, we had 20 eight-foot tables of food.  
 - I hope I'm not being sacrilegious here.  Actually I do believe that all animals, God's creatures, will go to Heaven, they are eagerly waiting (Romans 8:18-25 [click here]).
 - Top picture is a part of the flood control network for our subdivision, Cinco Ranch, in Katy, Texas (link).  It was formerly farm land, rice fields and pasture land.  There are no cows grazing here anymore.  Note the 2.1 mile walking trail around this part of the network.  We walk a mile or two, 30 minutes doctor's orders.
