What Do You See When You Take a Closer Look?



By Micky Wolf


To see a world in a grain of sand,

and a Heaven in a wild flower,
hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
and Eternity in an hour.
(William Blake)
I see…

A tiny seed bursting into new life.

A miniature leaf that has since become two, then four, then six.

A long green bean and then another and another.

An aromatic dish prepared for a dinner meal.

A family gathered around the table to share.

Those at the beginning of their journey. Those closer to the end.

Pause and ponder this moment in your life.

What Do You See When You Take a Closer Look?

It will always be…about more than what it appears to be at first glance.

And that is a very good thing.
