Small Things Are Hopping

Scribblings of An Aspiring Author


The beauty in the smallest things is that you must stop and linger  for a moment or miss their importance.




Haiku is a small sampling of the universe. 

Ever lingering 
in the taste of the walnut: 
deep autumn. 

James. W. Hackett 


Join us in this small Hop. Sample. Enjoy.

  4. Love those pics! I love admiring the small things. The other day, my husband and I went for a walk in the city. It was nice, but I'd much rather hike in the mountains, where small beauties are everywhere :)
