“To see the World in a Grain of Sand
And Heaven in a Wild Flower” – William Blake

I thought of those lines above when I looked deep into this little orb of intricacy. It really does seem that if you can just look as does a child, at every small piece of creation, you can see a tiny world or a kind of heaven in it. So much is so perfect. We wonder. And yet most of us don’t most of the time. So let us make a mental note to hone our wondering abilities and really look at every tiny ‘grain of sand’ or wild flower, to take it all in and absorb it. To really look and see. I know that every time I do this, I am absolutely amazed and so delighted with what I see. I hope to inspire you to share this with me.

  1. I look at this ephemeral seed head and immediately wonder (see it’s working) if this is where Buckminster-Fuller got the idea for his geodesic dome. It is plausible, but maybe not likely, that this little dandelion so inspired him, as Nature has inspired so many of man’s greatest inventions and discoveries. As W.B. Yeats has said “The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper”. Today’s shot is good example of that, I think. Thank you, Ellie.

    1. If I inspired this bit of wonder then that alone is enough for me for today’s posting. Thank you for the thoughts and the comment, Janet. I also really like the quote.
