Notice Me, Little Things

“Notice me,”
Little things say,
“Fit me,
Somewhere.”

“You will fit
Somewhere,”
I whisper,
“Notice me.”

Tiny fragments of sea shells
Once perfect for collectors
Now inhabit the sand
The Sea’s metamorphosis
Perfection for this moment
Not needing to be picked
Not needing to be paraded
Alongside perfect conches
Needing to be seen
Needing to be known
If only for this moment.

Smooth purple rings exposed
Underneath the surface
Show a structure strong,
Endured, now on the surface
Stating their presence.

I know where
You will fit:
Beside me
On the sand

Among friends
Ground down
Not to nothing
But into earth

Hold us up
“You do,”
Whispers
“I do.”

    Glad to hear it. Keep on keeping on. I’m riding a slow and sometimes rickety rollercoaster but hanging in there and generally going the right direction. 😊

    Exactly. The smallest things, especially those with tiny imperfections reveal more to us about God than any ideal beauty we could try and praise. This is one the lessons I have learned these absent months and I am grateful for my teacher.

    Thank you so much, Aurora. I am most thankful for those people who have shown me the beauty in the smallest details. These are the people who have taught me how to live and how to love. Thank you for reading and thank you for your kind words.
