The Plan

Detail from a mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona

Is there anyone to feed
The coyote in his need?
Who will soothe the fevered bird
With cool water and kind word?
Surely needed aid will come,
Unannounced by fife and drum,
Even as a stranger’s hand
Tends God’s creatures as God planned.

  1. Most native wild animals and birds in Australia know how to look after themselves in their wild environment however sadly the same can’t be said of the sea where pollution and overfishing is a problem. The rest of the world clearly has problems.

  2. O! Well done! A new favorite, eloquent and necessary. No one could say this better. Sharing.

  3. Even as a stranger’s hand tends God’s creatures as God planned…. sigh.. lovely!!

  4. i also like to have faith in god’s plan…

  5. We are caretakers and stewards of God’s world 🌎

  6. A necessary point of view, well presened!

  7. I love thinking of kindness being extended to coyote and bird……….this is beautiful.

  8. There is not enough kindness for animals who are being abused by their owners. Such a sad thing! Animal’s in the wild? Often on their own. We need to step up more.

  9. I enjoyed the religious turnout of your poem here. very brilliant!

  10. Very touching really. I do think we have to think about all of God’s creatures when we consider the kindness of strangers. Thought-provoking poems.

  11. Indeed, animals and birds need more than kindness from us…well said.
