a seashell for you


You,
being the person who has everything

i never would have thought…
after Years of me conjuring the perfect gift…

you could not appreciate it
because,
naively,
you did not know…

about the little things,
in life

and the treasures
they behold

so glad,
so fortunate

I could share it with you

  2. "To see a world in a grain of sand,
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    And eternity in an hour."

    - William Blake

  5. On level
    with humility
    the more we see
    of what is small
    and what is all

  10. Poems like this makes me fall at your feet....

    Kay,thankyou for your seashell,a seashell reminds us of what Socrates could'nt tell!

    From the tiny baby shell to the day it is washed empty it whispers, makes the child in us happy, the adult in us thoughtful, and vanishes.
    Maybe,even more than that....

    hugs to you.

  11. one second, one minute, one day

    gleam in your eye,
    raindrop of the rain,
    leaf on the grass
    first breath and second

    one word

    thank you

  17. If it is a poem ..it is very beautiful.

    If it is born from your mind ..it is a beautiful thought.

    If it's a gift, kay ..is the most beautiful gift that I would appreciate.
