Saturday morning, as I walked into the sun, I could see the dew reflecting in the sunlight on the damp earth. It was beautiful. It is rare that we get dew here, but with the rain this winter, it has happened a lot. I saw a photo opp. I decided to get down on my hands and knees and look more closely at this tiny little world below.
I discovered small ground cover, damp with tiny dew drops. Further down the path, again on my hands and knees, I found moss with tiny spouts! So cool to see up close. It was like a little forest of tiny trees, with colors of green and yellow and brown. Water glistened and I could imagine small creatures and little flying ferries with wings exploring the space and enjoying the coolness of the ground. So often our ground is dry and sandy. For this moment there is growth, green, life and shimmers that must indeed contain a tiny living world that we can only imagine.
For a moment my mind could exist in this tiny little world, full of curiosity in what magical mysteries exist down there at my feet…
I knew these were the perfect photos for this week’s Macro Monday post
This world, after all our science and sciences, is still a miracle; wonderful, inscrutable, magical and more, to whosoever will think of it.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
