Tiny Pebbles (533 views)

I closed my eyes and searched for silence

I felt tiny pebbles beneath my feet

I looked down at them and they started talking to me

They wondered why I searched
for something they could not see

Why I would take the time, make the time
for something so seemingly silly

I smiled in response as their wonder made me think

Well my tiny friends the answer isn't bleak

Simply said there's more to life
than tiny pebbles beneath my feet
