A Grain Of Sand - Poem by ENOCH JOHN

in the monumental scheme of things
i sit
on the beach.

Perhaps unimportant,
Like a polished pebble,
or even a solitary grain of sand.

i mightn't count for much
in the monumental scheme of things

in this vast universe
where hang like cherries of a tree
in a vast oval sky,

multitudinous stars,
and earth,
being just one of them.

    The interplay between the vastness of universe and
    creations is amazing. Though unseemingly such minute
    things can be unimportant but can be otherwise too
    leading to a fruitful presence......10/10

    Best Wishes
