Gaining Perspective

Looking at the vast azure sky, one can't help, but feel small;
as crowds of ants run in terror of cathedral-sized Converse.
I left sugar cubes next to their hill, feeling purposefully big.

    when I last came to this poem to greet you, it was May of last year!! I love seeing you at my poems, but gosh, you need to write something. I think I have already seen all your poems and I want MORE.

    Your first line reminds me of Emmanuel Kant, the rest is also deep and beautifully written, dear Timothy!

    Deep...the enormity or insignificance of things vary according to one's perspective. Enjoyed your poem. Will have to look up sijo. Kim

    Wow! Timothy, so good to see your smiling face. Being sporadic is better than disappering for life. It is natural to go through bouts of no writing. Musings don't need to be perfect. Just be purposely big. Lol One of my silliest poems is about cows hanging curtains on their fences but people seemed to love it. Happy New Year. SuZ

    The kindest giant in the Universe. We miss you. Best wishes for 2016, if you ever return. Perhaps you have turned of notifications. Cheers and Aloha, SuZ

    Great poem, hope the ants haven't captured you though!!!

    Hi Tim, you seem to have dissapeared again.

    I like this one a bunch. You gave me an ant size perspective with that "Converse".

    It's perspective that matters hahaha Tim. Wonderful witty friend. Love-rajat

    a really good sijo. Is it for the ant contest? That one requires all the words of his title be in the poem. Except for that, this would make a good entry!!

    I love this Tim..excellent Sijo

    This poem is delightful Timothy. It brought a big smile in contemplation.

    Clever perspective you present here Timothy. Like your way of thinking. [Let me digress...once I found a lot of ants coming into the house after food; I could not kill them, so I took food out for them and placed it next to their hole...soon they went after that and stopped their forays into mine!] Have a nice day! // paul
