The Aspen Leaf Trembles Through Out the Galaxies

Under the loving rays of the sun I watch the Aspen leaf dance and flutter in the gentle breeze. I focus on the tiny network of veins hidden within. I follow them and enter into a tiny maze of a fragile yet vibrant world. Traveling through the labyrinth I go through smaller and smaller pathways until I explode into the largest Universe.

An infinite number of galaxies exist within the tiniest of cells and the largest of galaxies contain an infinite number of microscopic cells.

As Thich Nhat Hanh says, "I have arrived, I am home."

~Peace to all beings~

"To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour."

An atmosphere of peace is exactly what I want to paint with those words. I'm glad you felt that.


That is one of my favorite verses in poetry.

Reminds me

"To see a World in a grain of sand, And Heaven in a wild flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour."

Green Woman:

(breathing deeply) Yes, I thought so too when these words came across that present moment. I'm happy that you enjoyed that moment as well.


Thank-you. I bow to the Buddha within you.
