Missing Small

Join me in the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. Participants write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no backtracking. This week’s word is: Small.


Whoever said that ‘small things amuse small minds’ clearly never studied small…

Never got up close to dew drops on the rose leaves

Never went looking for teeny tiny sea shells

Never noticed how furry a tomato stalk can be

Never saw the beauty in an onion flower

Never watched a flower unfurl

Never enjoyed the lavender glittering in the sun

Never knew what shapes make up the middle of a daisy

Never counted the veins on a pea plant

Never really admired a lady bug

Whoever said that? Missed a lot!


Now, your turn…


  1. Hi Lizzie! I am coming from FMF.

    What beautiful photos! They have your logo on them, so you took them? I am very impressed with your 'eye'. It is a blessing to see God's work in the small. You sure have done that!

    Nice to meet you today!

    1. Yes I took the photos. Thanks for your encouragement. Bless you heaps :)

  2. Great post Lizzy! Reminds me of a book called "Searching for Small"!

  3. Lizzy, you and I clearly pay attention to "small" around us. Beautiful photos. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It was a delight to discover someone else who thinks in a very similar way!

    This is so true!! But not just the visual beauty we miss in our busyness, but also the sound of the sea, the singing of doves, the laughter of a baby, crickets playing their violins at night while frogs are singing the base!

    1. Exactly! my list is but very, very, very small sample :)

  5. Very nice. You have been seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary.
