I know that it is Tuesday, and that I have neglected Top Ten Tuesday the past couple of weeks. In fact, for a change, I had a top ten list all typed up and ready to go. Then I looked at the calendar and saw that it's shiva asar betamuz. I decided a cynical top ten list wasn't so in spirit of the day. I decided to post this instead. I wrote it ages ago, not specifically for today, but I think the idea is nice in spirit of bein adam lechaeiro and rebuilding the beis hamikdash... Top Ten Tuesday will be back next week, iy"H.
It's one gigantic building,
And I'm just one little brick,
But for this structure to be steady,
It needs each stone and stick.
I'm just one tiny blade of grass,
In one meadow lush and green,
But those tiny blades grow together,
Into the nicest field you've seen.
I am just one tiny drop,
In one giant waterfall,
But those drops flow in unison,
And converge to make it tall.
It's one majestic necklace,
And I'm one unimpressive pearl,
But all of us strung together,
Beautify one special girl.
I'm just one tiny light bulb,
And the hall is bright as day,
But it's thousands of lights shining,
That make it glow that way.
I am just one short little word,
In one long book read by many,
But if any word is missing,
That book's not worth a penny.
Behold one gorgeous tapestry,
And I'm just one tiny thread,
But with one small color missing,
The whole scene would look dead.
I'm just one tiny flower,
In one big beautiful bouquet.
But all the colors and designs,
Together-brighten someones day.
It is one gigantic world,
And I'm just little old me,
But in this great, majestic world,
It's not 'bout I- but we!
