Hunting Bigfoot with Jesus, 1

While walking through a dark forest tonight
Leaves beneath my feet
Guiding my path
I came across Jesus
Sitting on a stump
In the black woods.
I said, a bit surprised,
What are you doing out here?!

He sat quietly

Do you like night hikes, too?
With the moon casting velvet shadows
And the spring peepers
Providing sweet night music?
Jesus said.
That's it.
The quiet beauty of
Creation at rest, and cetera...
It's certainly not because
I'm out looking for
Or anything like that.
There was another awkward pause and
Then he said
Well, enjoy your hike.
Jesus is a funny guy, sometimes.
