IN A Blade Of Grass

03 Aug

 Silently praised

As you can see, let me be

 For Who, that I am.

I speak in color,

I am the canvas of play

I awake in spring.

 

I create a path

Through space, having awakened

As grass in one blade.

    Once awakened it has a life of its own. It’ll move the world given the chance. This is true in many situations. Nicely ZQ!

    “having awakened as grass in one blade”…….that is really profound. Makes me think of the Talmud angel, somehow, who bends over a blade of grass, encouraging it to “Grow! Grow!” Beautiful, ZQ!!!! I just reread My Grave Mistake, too, and it is really stunning. It hits me because I, too, have lost everything I loved, always, every time, my whole life. There is a message in that that I am still trying to decipher.

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with
    the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.
