On a Small Scale
Sometimes you can tell a large story with a tiny subject.
~ Eliot Porter
~ Bright green, wee little inch worms. Six legs in front, six in back, and a U in the middle.
~ Dewdrops, like a string of pearls on a spiderweb at dawn.
~ The final falling glowing embers of a dissolving firework.
~ The soft little creases on the back of a baby's neck.
~ Tiny sugar crystals baked on to the top of a crackled cookie.
~ Tree frog toes and boogely eyes.
~ Glittery dust specks in a ray of morning sunlight.
~ One single solitary snowflake in all its lacy intricacy, just before it melts in the palm of your hand.
~ Tiny champaign bubbles that dance on your tongue.
~ The complicated design of veins on a papery dragonfly wing.
~ Sparkler stars tracing your name in the night sky.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
