~something Big

Rating: 4.7
An ocean swims in every tear drop
A river rejoices in every drop of rain
A thunder talks in every heart beat
The wind laughs in every breath
The sun speaks in every smile
Something big in every little thing!

A forest hides in every acorn
A mountain shelters in every pebble
An eagle glides in every butterfly
A millennium inhabits every moment
A library dances in every idea
Something big in every little thing!

A great nation hibernates in every child
A great journey lives in every foot step
A million dollars sleep in every dime
An orchestra flies in every singing bird
The heart of an elephant powers every ant
Something big in every little thing!

Oh God! Give me eyes that I might see
Something big in every little thing
And please help me to understand
How the gigantic God of the galaxies
Dwells in my diminutive, fragile heart
Something big in every little thing!

Howard, this is a beautiful, inspiring, well-written poem. Thanks for sharing it with me. The near rhymes are particularly clever and appropriate, never forced.

OOOOOOPS! ! ! ! ! I WAS CORRECT THE FIRST TIME. TOP 500 POEMS, NOT TOP 500 POETS. IT MUST BE GETTING LATE, AND/OR I AM GETTING TOO OLD. : (: (

(CONT.) I only see ONE punctuation mark, a comma, in the whole poem, but, in this poem, the scarcity of punctuation marks bothered me very little; in some poems it bothers me a lot, and slows me down and interferes with my understanding. (CONT.)
