On A Small Scale 2010

         On A Small Scale

She does it all –

But small.

Gives her concerts;

Public twelve.

Delves into her writing,

Hardly filling an A4;

Exercising: weights two kilos;

Zeal modest,

Meditating anywhere.

Just for minutes.


Parties six at most;

As host, she says she can’t converse

When there are more.

Sincerity. A key.

Succeeding slowly, surely;

Small ways daily;

Perspicacious, persevering,


It is sound philosophy –

More countries should apply it.

Saving on the small things to get the big ones.
