Little Things (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo

[Author’s Note: Little things can make all the difference in the world.]

A little wave can influence a costal shore

                since every gentle brush pulls grains of sand into the sea

                and delivers treasures from the deep onto the land

A little water can give rise to a mighty tree

                given with patient fondness over many long years

                like a mother who watches her child grow by the day

A little kindness can turn a stranger into a friend

                to weave lifelong memories alongside throughout a lifetime

                or to reach out and embrace whenever darkness falls

A little thing can make all the difference in the world

                because our world consists of countless little things

                each one of us affects the universe in countless little ways
