Poem 148:

The Lost Grain of Sand

——————–

The little grain of sand
fell asleep in the warm swirl
until she awoke at midnight,
pondering what was to be

Alone with her thoughts,
she wiggled and squirmed
to awaken in morning light,
a beautiful pearl

——–
Some times finding peace is a simple matter of letting go
and letting God take us where he wants us to be
just a morning thought…
