small things...

i could definitely sit here and stare at sailboats go by all day,
listening to the waves fold so softly into themselves.



as i walk mindfully upon the shore,
i pause for a moment to rescue stranded shells,
and feel the grains of sand falling gently through my fingers.



enters my daughter, with a treasure she found,
hmmmm, i wonder who lives upon this rock?
must be very small people, and i bet they're pretty shy too.
kindly, we placed the rock back at the water's edge.



i began to think of all the small, innocent children around the world,
who suffer as a result of hunger, poverty, sexual and physical abuse,
and i prayed so deeply for them.  oh Jah Jah, please deliver them.

*speaking of innocent children, i recently learned about the butterfly project and couldn't help but share it with all of you.  my daughter and i will be joining in.  won't you please join us?  one love.

*Dearest Tracey, 

Giving thanks for the gift of your friendship.  It's been an honour to grace your space (hey, that rhymes ;)  I surely enjoyed my visit.  one love.  


Se'lah.
