Big Things Are Fascinating

By Tammy Reese

Big things are fascinating.
Discoveries that enlighten
Skyscrapers that tower
Understandings that frighten
Great walls that protect
Ideas that change the course of history
Mistakes that destroy something precious
Solutions that solve a life-threatening mystery

Small things are fascinating
Gestures that enrage
Words that insult
Smiles that engage
Glances that invite
Hugs that feel warm
Arms that hold safely
Touches that transform
