Seeing Good

Tree roots
  starve stretch across dry ground,

Bark peels
  away from a dying trunk all around,

Brown leaves
  from branches cast, flutter earth bound,

Dead tree tops
  scrape blue skies without a sound,

And yet, child eyes
  seeing good, smile at the clouds,
    knowing just beyond God's looking down.

Philippians 4:8
Proverbs 11:27
