One Square Inch

We live our lives

as tiny beings in a forgetful sea;

microcosm of madness,


trodden upon,

or eaten alive.

Yet in our miniature world,

what higher calling is there

than to leave the soil

enriched for our having existed?

No lofty super-heroic global cause,

but fertilizing one



at a time…

    Just when I think you’ve surpassed yesterday’s excellence, there’s more–this one really encourages me to believe I’m fulfilling the calling to “one square inch”. Beautiful work, Melody–thank you so much. God bless you–love, Caddo
