Not subject to scale


We think
so unique,
so one
in a million,
but we shrink
to ants from
a giant’s stance –
will you look
up as you pass?
Do you notice
the greatness
of being a part
of something
how our
is deeper
the surface,
the reaches of
our souls
not subject
to scale?
the trails

    • Thank you, Melanie! I love Calvin and Hobbes and own the entire collection. Bill Watterson always seems to strike a chord on my heartstrings and funny bone xylophone. Thank you for sharing this link with me. Hope you are having a good day, my friend 🙂
