LITTLE BIG THINGS. A special post

I saw the Angel in the marble,

And I carved till I set him free.

~Michaelangelo~
The Spartan and Poseidon

Behemoths wade freedom’s current
And giants roam routes a thousand years old

An elephant never forgets
Its memory is one with emotion

To a shoal of sardines
Penguins are the monster

To the gentle ladybug
A hamster is the nightmare

You cannot understand
That the smallest of things for you
Is a mountain for another

Ancient gods of the wild

Monster is relative
But kindness is universal
The angry buffalo harbours an oxpecker
Deadly sharks shelter small remora
And the lonely rich lady next door
Caters for orphaned migrants in shelters.

They say that birds of the same feather flock with eachother
But giants and minnows often thrive together
One bringing the wisdom of humility
The other opening a world of possibility

Little things, little deeds
How big your impact is!

The Titan of Braavos

I’m celebrating a thousand followers today,
Fifteen months to the week since I opened up to the world with my very first post.

Thank you to all those who clicked Follow and more specially to those who have become friends, and interact with me regularly.

Cheers to the little big things.

Hope you enjoy the poem. I used images from some of my favourite stories.

Stay safe, and stay loving.

P.S Don’t let my celebrations overly distract you from the gist of this post, which is; to always give whichever way you can, And then some more.

    Congratulations Jude on your well-deserved following and thank you for sharing this wonderful poem: โ€˜Monster is relative
    But kindness is universalโ€™ – I live this. All of our worst fears are small in relation to love and kindness which is infinite ๐Ÿ™ love the quote at the start as well!
