A Grain of Sand

Written by: Abdul Malik

I tossed a pebble
in a placid lake and
caused roaring ripples
in the vast seas;

I blew softly on the
breath of a passing breeze
and spawned raging storms;

I gathered high mountains
in a warm embrace
and set their hearts ablaze;

I scratched on the face
of the earth and gouged
these deep canyons;

I kissed the setting sun
and sent tremors through
the core of the earth;

I set the remedy for
all the ills of the mankind
within the realm of Nature;

I replicated the
laws of the Universe
in a drop of water;

I garnered these
profound secrets
and locked them in
A grain of sand!
