We call it a grain of sand
Just a little part of life
Friendswood, TX USA - Mon Oct 26 16:47:07 1998
tiny particles like seeds
NJ USA - Thu Oct 29 09:07:24 1998
finely crushed and buried deep inside
Winter Haven, Fl USA - Mon Nov 2 17:56:45 1998
hidden to the naked eye.
USA - Tue Nov 3 18:16:08 1998
We call it the germ of life, the seed of a new beginning
Clinton, CT USA - Tue Nov 3 20:20:03 1998
first irritant, then accepted, pearled into wisdom,
Stamford, NE USA - Tue Nov 3 21:30:39 1998
then funnelled to mark the passage of time,
Fairfax Station, VA USA - Tue Nov 3 21:52:22 1998
the seed must root and learn to climb.
Hillsdale, NY USA - Fri Nov 6 18:18:04 1998
Buried in the past...stretching to the future,
USA - Fri Nov 6 20:09:03 1998
it is the present that awakes us--the mercenary of reality.
Bronx, NY USA - Wed Nov 11 13:01:28 1998
This ancient story, told once more

in the garden with a twist -- it has been done before

removing unwanted seeds letting them prosper,
Shelden R.L. Wisher
Fairborn, OH USA - Fri Nov 13 16:45:55 1998
each grain alters the new pathways ahead.
Winter Haven, fl USA - Sun Nov 15 05:57:58 1998
Yet given to us - instead of our bread
Ames, Ia USA - Sun Nov 15 21:10:58 1998
AND STILL PLANTED DEEP INSIDE YOUR HEAD.
USA - Mon Nov 23 13:21:02 1998
A legacy heard by deaf ears never seen by naked eyes,
Kelowna, B.C. Canada - Mon Nov 23 20:56:55 1998
a longing felt with tears but never satisfied.
Anchorage, AK USA - Tue Nov 24 13:16:29 1998
The sand blows and the beach grows and God knows...

that someday the idle seed will bloom int a rose.
Friendswood, TX USA - Mon Nov 30 17:28:14 1998
But, for now, it waits
Denver, co USA - Wed Dec 2 19:13:57 1998
pearled or hidden from the tongue.
Los Angeles, USA - Thu Dec 3 15:04:50 1998
Yet to be dicovered in its beauty

and to unfold when time beckons nature to dance its dance
Dawsonville, Ga. USA - Fri Dec 4 21:36:10 1998
apon the slumbering shores of distant lands,
GGa. USA - Sat Dec 5 05:52:04 1998
on a beach or under the fingernails of a child
Robert Y. Hood
Albany, CA USA - Sun Dec 6 06:46:12 1998
who shovels this grain into her bucket of sand

as the cold december waves splash upon her tiny ash white feet.
Clearwater, Fla. USA - Thu Dec 10 13:24:40 1998
Such a tiny grain of sand, one can only imagine its destiny now

to spit on, and gather with hands realize how small built upon small is grand.
Ronald D. Istivan. Jr.
Binghamton, NY USA - Fri Dec 11 18:56:25 1998
Like the mustard seed, small leads to great,

always with new begginings mixed with love and hate.

and adds to your life a mixed blessing of love and hate
