"Beauty is truth,
truth beauty,
that is all Ye know on Earth,
that is all Ye need to know..." - John Keats

Through an Insect's Eye...

What if we were the size of ants?
What if every grain of sand,
were like a boulder,
and every rock,a mountain,
on which,we climb and stand?

What if,we were like
a bee in a rose,
seeking sweet nectar,
we could swarm those lands...

And,what if we were
those small insects,
which would take a long walk
on these human hands?

A larger,more wondrous,
our world might seem...
Lesser,a burden,
our life might be...

I see,Ye God,
I see Ye in those bees...
I see Ye bumbling away,
while on a feather me sleeps...

Karthik,
A lovely idea of the perspective of the human and his regard, or lack of for anything else, less than human.
A moment to appreciate creativity itself.
I liked this very much.
Best wishes,
Eileen
