I am chasing grasshoppers

I am chasing grasshoppers in the yard
Such a fun filled thing
The grasshopper always one jump ahead
And I, panting hard
Only want a couple to bring
And set before my students' eyes
So they may look and realize
The investment God has made in us
And bridge the vault of fear with trust.

    "The investment God has made in us And bridge the vault of fear with trust." There could not be more perfect words that I've read today. Many hugs and as always, thank you for sharing yourself and your brilliant mind with us.

    A clever poem that brings such joy. It reminds me of trying to catch a frog that made it into our kitchen. I chased it around whilst it too was one jump ahead. Eventually he left on his own I’m relieved to say, coz secretly I was terrified of having to touch that energetic little frog. Going into the favs. Kat x
