Once we looked at the tiniest little thing




Once we looked at the tiniest little thing
it looked up with caring innocent eyes
its heart was bigger than what all words mean

Once perception was more than me
looking was deeper than distance and time
living was beyond becoming or be

  1. “Ladies and Gentleman … the Beetles!”

    P.S. I clicked on the photo to get a better look at those little beetles, not quite as cute as the mop-topped lads, but cute in their own right. πŸ™‚


    • πŸ™‚ I downsize my photos for WordPress… so they really, i don’t suppose, can be enlarged much. People who post high Mb pics are wasting their Media allotment and are wasting the time of people who have slow internet speeds. So sad about John Lennon; he could have, perhaps, helped to change things even more.


      • I only started using larger pictures this year. The first year, I had very few pictures and they were very small back then. I only started using multiple pictures last year on a whim when I went on a walk and couldn’t decide what picture to use as a head pic for that day’s post. Yes, it was a loss with John Lennon – another senseless shooting.

  2. I do love being eye-to-eye with creatures of all sorts. There’s an awareness and an intelligence there that can’t be denied. (Well, I suppose it is denied by some, but never mind that.)


  3. Reblogged this on and commented:
    If my inner workings could come out in poetry form, this is what it would say. Beautiful Tom!
