We’ve seen a lot of grains of sand
but not all grains of sand on Earth,
and yet we guess we understand
the large amount their sum is worth.

So, when a scientist explains
the stars that in the heavens shine
by far outnumber all these grains,
we get a sense of the divine.

Though this analogy’s not new,
from ancient times it has been told,
it helps, as it’s related to
some articles that we can hold.

Since sand is something we can clasp,
we think we gain a better grasp.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.

Grains Of Sand
Hi James...another gem from that fertile brain of yours. You excel in taking an inane subject and making it food for thought! lol

Thanks, Bea
Here's a quick haiku for you:


-- James Ph. Kotsybar

Jumbling his visions,

French quatrains out of order,

Nostradamus * wrote.

LOVE Nostradamus...think he was right on the button...even todayj! Wish he were with us now to warn us of what's to come!

Of stars and comprehension
We're made up of the same materials as the stars. Our minds are limited- who can understand that?

I really enjoyed this. It made me gather previous notes on how we're gloriously infinitesimal when measured up against the vast, ever-expanding universe. You've dwarfed any summations I may have had regarding my place in the scheme of things. For that, I thank you.
