Lord, Keep Me Safe and After the Storm

A poet was inspired by an image I posted on my Facebook "Like" page and website. I like it and want to share with you.
Keep Me Safe
I saw the storm clouds gathering
I prayed – Lord, keep me safe
With all your might and majesty
Protect this lowly waif
Not just from Mother Nature
From all evil stalking me
Part the clouds of doubt and sin
So your bright light I might see
For as the Bible tells us
You’re the light and you’re the way
Guide me and protect me
Keep me safe, I pray.

After the Storm
After the storm has passed us
Red clouds dot the sky
Reflecting hell’s own fire storm
That somehow passed us by
Then all at once the clouds part
Bright rays come shining through
Reminding us that God’s still there
No matter what we do
So when your life is stormy
And red cloud’s all you see
Remember God’s still with you
And His light will set you free.

Baby Robins 2

American Robins are my favorite bird to photograph. I like to dignity the bird has. I've watched them over the years and more so as a photographer and have had some fun and even scary experiences with them (fun- while reseeding my yard and digging up areas to sod, a Robin followed me around as if to be asking for the worms in the soil. Scary- accidently got too close to a nest while mulching- trust the bird let me know).

The exciting part of this photo shoot was getting to watch the female bird wait with the babies until the male bird came with "lunch". I didn't get a shot of them feeding as the branches were in the way.
Here are two images from the shoot.
