Always, always begins in very small

microscopic sperm

microscopic egg

9 months inside an ocean’s ball.


Always, always starts with something small.

A seed to the earth

a few drops of the ocean

then harvest time comes in the fall.

Or a thought conceived

in the heart and mind

that may not seem like much at all

til’ the concept grows so large

it must emerge from the abyss

in the bush

or you cant rest until you act

and now you have to push.

As you gaze upon all that’s flourished

like wild vines upside a wall

be it art

be it craft

be it service

be it business

or a baby turned adult grown tall

remember it began in concept

almost next to nothing at all

and shed your fear to birth what’s on your heart

it always, always starts very small.
