Small Packages

Have you ever picked a cherry off a tree

And paused to really look

To notice color, deep and red

Or pale stem’s gentle curve?

Then popped it in your waiting mouth,

And felt the flavor burst

As teeth chew ’round the cherry stone

Then cast it to the earth.

And if it happens as the sun

shines down on your face,

Or if you share a second one

Spreading the sweet taste,

Realize you’ve experienced

One of God’s small packages

If you’ve even had but one,

Then He has given much.
