pomes of buddy don: Though Small as Sand

Though Small as Sand

The universe is vast and still expands
Or seems to from our earth bound vantage points –
To breadth that no one truly understands
Whose implication largely disappoints.

For what in such a universe are we
But scattered sands upon a grain of sand?
Religious principles must disagree
In claiming God’s likeness was made in man.

For if God is not everything and all
That ever was or ever yet could be
Then must God be, like mankind, rather small
Compared to galaxy and galaxy?

No, God is all and everything, and man
Is still a part of God though small as sand.

Kinda makes me feel small and insignificant. A feeling I have grown familiar with over the decades.

I keep coming back to this poem Buddy. It is wonderful. In my opinion probably your best ever. I get dizzy when I read it.
