"He showed me something small, no bigger than a hazelnut,...
I thought: What can this be? I was amazed that it could last,...I thought because of its littleness, it would suddenly have fallen into nothing. ,...
It lasts and always will, because God loves it; and thus everything has being through the love of God."

Sweet Refreshment - Dabbling in the Dew
These buttercups in the park
have grown long and lush
due to the rain
and I couldn't resist taking off my sandals to walk
the mown path
and about to wade in
I found they would have been up to my waist
so contented myself with "dabbling in the dew" along the grass path.
Soon enough my feet were stunningly cold and wet,
and I was glad I hadn't ventured into
the deep buttery sea all around me.
Emerging onto the hard path
I cleaned my feet of mud and grass as best I could
and revelled in the warmth of being re-shod,
but oh, my feet felt tinglingly re-vitalised.
Common sense tells me it would have been been too much
