A Skunk Came Walking By   Leave a comment

By Ouida Tomlinson, OFS

A skunk came walking by last night,

traveling east and leaving his stinky smell behind.

Time passed.  I thought about the skunk – I thought about me.

I thought about my quickly passing life.

Like the skunk, I too travel east,

but seeking God’s grace and sweet fragrance to cover my sometimes stinky self.

How can I explain to my priest why I overslept this Easter morning?

How will I explain that I could not sleep because a skunk came walking by?
