Small stones

Small Stone 6/1/11

Compost Heap

Lettuce leaves, still green, no longer edible.
Grapefruit peel, still yellow.
Orange peel, still orange.
Broccoli stalk, still green.
Onion peel, still identifiable.

What lies underneath is no longer identifiable. It has metamorphosed into something else – something that can be useful again.

What about us? We have no use below ground, but we can make a huge difference above. Most of us don’t. What a shame!
