narrow way

 

Just as a 

wren wriggles

through a small hole

to nestle in the safe haven

of a snug and lofty bird house,

 

And a barn

cat walks thin

to gain access into

the cozy tunnel shelter of

stacked staw bales in winter,

 

Or a tiny

freckled gecko slips

itself through a crack

to enter, gratis, into

a tropical luxury hotel,

 

So any of

us sinner folk

may pass by faith

through the narrow gate

to live in peace and paradise.

    Lynn! Wow! These images, so vivid. The cat, “walking thin.” The gecko, slipping in, gratis.

    Great to meet you last night.
