One Speck

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, March 25, 2010 Under: Poetry
Looking at the speck
so close, so close
seeing just one speck
examining everything
about it.
Sure, maybe there is
another speck
but I don't have time
to notice it at all.
I'm focused.
I can't see anything else.
Why should I want to?
Isn't this speck enough?
Doesn't it give all the
information that I need?
This tiny speck,
it's the right one.
Wait, now that I look around,
I see much more
than just one speck.
There are lots of specks.
They come together,
they make sense,
they weave the theme
into a beautiful picture.
I've never noticed this before.
I've never seen how they
all intertwine.
They connect.
Stand alone, yes,
they are powerful.
But together, they
change everything.
Now I realize
just looking at one speck
robbed me of the
experience of the big picture.
My sight is crystal clear
and now I can see it all.
