us tiny bits of matter… by Toni L.A. Cross


just now a screaming baby was born

and somebody else died tired and worn

sweaty clothes fell in a passionate heap

and a girl driving in traffic fell asleep

just now a couple fell in love

while an old lady fed crumbs to a dove

a lonely man bought a case of beer

and a widow wiped away another tear

somewhere someone is laughing til it hurts

a tired young mom is ironing shirts

a cashier is totaling up for the day

and a cat is watching her kittens play

many heartbeats pitter-patter

all of us tiny bits of matter

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

    A very pleasant poem to read…so many events that go unnoticed…but as you say..they all matter.
