God’s Mysterious Ways

Sitting
In my corner 
Watching the sparrow chirp
My eyes fell on a lonely worm
Nearby.

Sadly
The sparrow saw
The worm wriggling away
Was quick to pick it, swallowing 
It fast.

Saddened 
Deeply hurt, moved
Consoled myself with thought 
This is how the life cycle works
Strange ways. 

I sat
And watched the scene 
The sparrow now hiding
In the crevices of my wall
Waiting.

A crow
Saw the sparrow
Eyes gleaming,  came closer
I swung into action, clapped hands
Both flew.
