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.

    Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my
    good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have
    a good read. Thanks for sharing!

    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.

    They’re all beautiful. My favorite is the second one. I love that you can elicit such imagery from a blade of grass.

    “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.

    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!
