hopping happily, happily hoping

| On :

The other day I spent time watching a grasshopper while waiting for the sun to rise. Yes I did, yes I sat there, and disturbed its happy resting on those yellow-orange petals.

It held on to the soft cottony oh so colorful flower which I bet is sweet because with him were ants.

As I manipulated my cam, the cute one moved too.

It must have been trying to escape my intrusion I thought. 

Until I realized it was hanging on to dear life as it struggled from being blown away by the wind...
I watched the pretty green fellow carefully grasping the orange fibers with its eyes wide open and alert.
As I stared my mind as always wandered to days when I barely had the time to watch the world go by. There was a time when every minute was saved for a thing to do...when the only break I had was breathing, even eating wasn't fun....when there were problems to think of here and there...and pain was too hard to bear...Oh I guess most everyone goes through such storms in life but resilient as we are, most of us survive the woes and strife...thanks to our families and friends and God above who never fails to listen to our prayers...

as for our little friend above, It managed to cling to the flower that when I checked on him at twilight..he was still there, patiently...faithfully like most of us, waiting for another bright sun shiny day....hopping happily...happily hoping...
