From a bothersome pebble
caught in your shoe,
from the soil to the boulders
and further away
to the mountains and sea,
see the planet, our home.
Then gaze skyward
to the infinite void,
where earth is a pebble.
Then imagine the shoe.
Today De hosts the Quadrille at dVerse, and the word to incorporate into a 44-word poem is zoom.

Oh! This is wonderful! Just imagine…
I love the different perspective, Björn, from pebble to the planet and back again!
Nice work, Björn 🙂
Wow, you zoomed way out…and God’s even bigger than the shoe!
Ooo… zoom in, then zoom out, then zoom in! Very cool.
Wow. That’s cool!
I love your vivid imagination. Most interesting perspective!
So clever! Well done.
An interesting take on the prompt. Nicely done.
Oh beautiful…that shifting perspective!!
Beautiful! Feels like I’m walking in those mountains and changing the way I look at life!
Wow! Splendid, Bjorn. 🙂
The idea makes me dizzy!
Wow! What an incredible way of sizing earth.
Happy you dropped by my blog.
Oh, brilliant words!
Zooming in, then out! Love it.
Oh, that last line is like a shoe hanging on in there, balanced on a languid toe … and then dropped.
Dizzying dimentions of space – remembering Carl Sagan’s ‘powers-of-ten’ exercise in ‘Cosmos’….
Oh, you truly expanded the view. Perspective is everything.
I love that you used “zoom” so creatively.
The title initially made me think of The Flinstones, but this was not playful at all. Very philosophical and thought-provoking.
