Speck of significance


In the universe, a human so small,
Looking just like a speck of dust
But born with a mind and a soul

    Masterful poem about the power of one small ripple

    I loved the idea of the 'kindness revolt'- there's some change for us that politics can never deliver (no matter what it keeps on promising) . I tried to see if I had commented
    on this before but it would never allow me to see 'all 16 comments'. Anyway if I did comment before, it's still a marvelous job here. (Report) Reply

    WOW. Really excellent. This poem speaks volumes to me. I have a friend in Malaysia who spends her days tirelessly working on behalf of others. She is my heroine. She is wonderful and has a beautiful soul and the kindest heart. This poem speaks about her to me and I love it. It is so profound what one speck can do in the dust storm swirling around us. Beautiful and may i share this with her? She was the first to have one of my poems published on her non profit sites blog. I love the tiny speck doing so much good in the world. Brava...

    Even the simplest act of kindness is significant. It must start somewhere. I'd like to be a speck of significance. Strong, positive message. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Very well written. Keep writing and thanks for sharing. I liked your concluding lines:

    So in each of our lives we must
    Make a choice of incredible importance
    Do we want to be just a speck of dust
    Or a speck of significance. (Report) Reply

    But if a butterfly in India, flapping its wings
    could cause a storm over the Atlantic
    i liked this comparison of how a little act of kindness can create such a great movement.

    Act of kindness and real love is always universal (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
