Gerbil (#SmallWonder Link-up)



Tiny nose,
bulging eyes,
whir of white
whiskers. 

Pin-prick
precision fingers
carry bedding,
clutch seeds. 

Nest,
burrow,
run
‘round
the wheel. 

The cat,
obsessed,
incensed,
broods
on top of
her cage
sniffing,
spying,
swatting.

Guess what?  We finally have a #SmallWonder button!  If you want to use it, simply copy the image, then add it to your post or sidebar with a link to www.afieldofwildflowers.blogspot.com.  


Are you or do you have writer friends local to the PA, Maryland, New Jersey area?  If so, would you consider attending or sharing the information about the upcoming writing retreat to be held here at the farm house?  You can find more details under the Writing Retreat tab.



Welcome to the #SmallWonder link-up.  

What if we chose to deliberately look for the small moments of wonder, the small sparks of presence, of delight or sorrow, of true humanity in which we meet God? 

That's my proposal - that we gather here each week to share one moment of Wonder from each of our days.  

You're invited to link-up a brief post about a small moment of wonder.  Don't worry if your post is too long, too short, or not just right - you're welcome to come as you are.  

While you're here, please do take a look around and encourage at least one other blogger with a comment.

  1. What a cute gerbil picture! I'm not sure we ever got a good picture of our gerbils. Just have to keep them in my mind's eye. And that's okay. ha. Hope your cat keeps appropriate distance. :)
