Swoop – Décima

The care they take is on display
as swallows from the rafters swoop.
From nest to ground they make a loop
to feed their young throughout the day.

Can evolution show a way
that’s plausible when all I see
is nature mocking endlessly?
Chance has no chance to make sense here.
There’s much to doubt. They no doubt fear
we’ve lost our gullibility.

Ronovan Hester offers the rhyme word “swoop” to be used in a B-line of a décima having rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC for this week’s challenge.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. I’m not sure what those birds are. There were many nests under that park picnic area, many birds going in and out. They reminded me of barn swallows that we used to have on my parent’s farm. Good point: Only God makes sense.
