Impressive

on

Do you know what impresses me about pebbles?

They endure. Always.

I mean, pick your punishment: they’ve beaten it.

Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Crushed for Millennia,

Slammed out of Cliffs,

Storms, Waves. Dogs.

 

Battered beyond belief. Yet…

All the more beautiful for their bludgeoning.

Unbroken.

Never. Ever. Shattered.

As are all impressive people.

  1. I love this even if occasionally we feel like pebbles which have been chipped and are waiting for the smoothing effect of some gentle waves. x

      Well said Sally. I reckon I am sand grains though.

  2. Constantly changing and being changed, but overall going with the flow? Yep, I can see that.
