Enormity Of The Small - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

The smallest reveals itself quickest;
there exist more grains of sand
than sequoia trees.
If I were to say: Find the smallest word
in this sentence, and then magnify the smallest
character in that word to the smallest
reduction technology allows,
you could do it.

But what if I were to say: Find the largest word
in this sentence; then regard the sentence itself;
then note the screen it appears upon;
then the desk your computer rests upon;
then the wall behind the desk; then the room;
then your house, your neighborhood,
your city, your state, your country;
then the continent, Planet Earth itself;
then the canopy of the sky;
the solar system; the galaxy;
the universe and what’s after that.

What a mystery;
what a mandala.
What a beauteous beatification
is the large and the small
of things.
