Life Swimming Under

So much life just floating about,
Drifting with the flow.
Some are in a hurry,
Just swimming wherever they go.
The light and water
Playfully dance.
The eye and the mind
Are delightfully entranced.
The creatures are lively,
Creating ripples and waves.
I am entertained
By the show they make.
God is so gentle, generous, and loving
To create such wonder.
There is such beauty
In the life swimming under.

Another Day in the Ark

Another day in the ark,
and all the critters are stirring.
Every creature in here
wonders what is occurring.
Trapped inside
and distracted by life,
we are overwhelmed
by our strife.
Sometimes we see the windows.
Sometimes we see the sky.
Sometimes we spread our wings
and dream that we can fly.
Sometimes we even notice
the door across the room,
but then the lock and barricade
bring back the gloom.
Watching and waiting
for the Captain to unlock,
we continue to dream
of the day we dock.
