A batch of cubs bending the grass completing their sleeping task.
Past, and future, present tense their smiling teeth reflect their motives to wear ugly masks.
To catch all they can in their claws as they clasp. They’re cubs of wrath.
Momma bear never gave them the warm bath.

They don’t lick their paws and were not taught how to bathe.
They cannot crawl on their own might and do not know how to behave.
They are not mature—knowing only how to fret.
They have not even opened their eyes yet.
They all long to grow but not all do so

Go to the stream where the sleep padded meadows don’t lean towards me.
The clippings point away and the pine needles point directly up.
For the first time I realize it is not about me.
I was a hibernating, grizzly pup.
But now I am hydrated and the Lord has filled my cup.

I don’t care if I have a bed.
Let’s all glorify this fountain instead.

To feel small in this world and sing. (brings joy, brings peace, from a God of hope)
A heavenly apathy relieves from everything.
All thought is cast away.
