BIG … a poem

This is a poem I wrote many years ago entitled ‘BIG’. It has a spiritual element to it.

I am so BIG 

I can spread out over the mountain.

Feel the animals and plants

become one with them and feel my paws on the earth.


I am so BIG 

I can commune with the stars…

Swing on the moon…

Ride the energies in laughter.


I am so BIG

I can feel the joy in everything.

Dance to the rhythm of life

dance for the joy of movement

and uplifting of spirit.


I am so BIG

that my heart is an endless

source of compassion

and my love shines 

brighter than the sun.


But sometimes I am so small

you could hold me

in the palm of your hand

and your breath

could break me.
