To comprehend a grain of sand
[To comprehend a grain of sand]

To comprehend a grain of sand --
Seems an easy task -- 
Yet who will ever understand --
The smallest on the beach?

Consider then an ocean wide --
What reason question ask?
Experience -- be touch of tide --
Essence -- none can reach.

Beautiful with such a powerful message. Well done.

The indivisible, does a grain of sand cut in two become two grains? and what does an electron comprehend is its universe? 7,046 billion people and that probably doesn't add up to a beach... and each one, each grain has its own gravity, mass and character and each one is bound to the other by weak "emotional" forces.


What a great poem, I like the use of "tide" in your piece and the idea of uniqueness.. and I am sure you are right, magic, art and science. The Greeks put it all together, from the atom to music in the spheres..


I liked your poem very much.

Hmmmm, the essence of this is a burning question too, to contemplate a grain of sand and realize that there is something within that small grain makes it seem infinite. You got me thinking on this one Davied, excellent writing!   Henry

Ah, but in that grand of sand may lie answers. Some may look upon it as just a speck of silicon dioxide, others may unlock the secrets of the universe, with it. Latitude and attitude.

Wow, speechless.

Most profound, my friend. The more you understand, the more you become aware of how much there is to understand. Infinatey is infinately small, as it is infinately big. No matter how small, you can't cut something in half and come up with nothing...Yer bro, len
