Each blade of grass a story (Day 603)

Each blade of grass   a story
each paving stone   a poem
knitted of lichen & moss
punctuated by five-petaled
sky-blue flowers   so tiny 
they defy the eye of anyone 
who fails to stop & stoop 
over their miniature bower   
(only a select few ever do)   
& so   the stories & the poems 
go largely unnoticed   content 
in their role  delighting 
(mostly)   artists   & amblers  
& the patient companions 
of slow-sniffing dogs
