To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
Blake, a mystic poet, is expressing the sense of spiritual mystery, awe and fascination encapsulated in the miniature, yet revealing something much larger – a glimpse of the omniscient.
In a grain of sand you can envision the entire cosmos… When you view a wild flower with all your senses, you can imagine a heaven, and the palm of your hand can hold something infinite. Can you imagine this hour as representing eternity?
And in the miniature – perhaps your smile – I know the world is a loving place.
Welcome to My World!
