blake blooms

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
 
– William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

Every little thing contibutes to the big picture in our lives. For us to be able to appreciate the world, we have to appreciate the small things -both the good and the bad- no matter how insignificant they may seem. Like, a small "grain sand" in a wide-spreading beach. An uncovered drainage hole (maybe TMNT were there!). A random sms perhaps. Or a quick smile from a stranger. Yes, there might be a few hiccups along the way but these make the so-called "better" things even more worthwhile. A contrast of the rough grainy sand to the smooth texture of a wild flower. Even just the cream bland colour and the strong bright hues. Indeed, a "wild flower" is beautiful, mesmerizing and unique, for more often than not, it has weathered through countless storms while sometimes bending with the direction of the wind. And, perhaps, after all the obstacles and enjoyment, we then develop into a wild flower.  And, only then, do we see things from a different perspective. As if we are in "heaven." Where we will be surrounded with angels and other good things. So, i guess, as of now, we just have to live by the moment. And, live it to the fullest. As if that moment is to last for "eternity." No regretful thoughts of the past or worried anticipation of the future. Because how we live our lives is "in the palm of [our] hands." And that immeasureable power of the memories we are to reminisce and keep until tomorrow (which never comes). infinitely is in our control.
