Sticking under my shoe, making me so uneasy.
Getting in my sock, just have to get it out.
Pebbles in my pigeon peas…crunch!!!
Stumping my toe…ouch!!!
One more pebble causes the well to overflow
One more pebble to block that leaking hole.
You can avoid a boulder it’s easy to spot
Pebbles… steups…they’re little spots, that
Get in everything, gosh they’re everywhere
Some smooth, some sharp, some round and kinda square.
Smaller than my imagination, yet big enough to stop my engine abrupt!
Smaller than my foot but, if I step too hard then I howl with pain and it’s now bigger than I suspected.
Small you think you are,
Small is good. Small can see the big picture more than any boulder would…could…admit.
Small beginnings don’t frown on them, small things observe them close.
Pebbles can do boulder feats if we just look.
