Indifference

I saw
A blade
Of grass
Stood
All alone
-
Illuminated by
The morning sun
-
Indifferent
-
If it
Were
On it's own
-
Or of
Ten billion
Blades
-
Just
One

this is a little like the wave/ocean comment!

Yes I agree, this is "no man is a blade of grass" (or "a wave") etc cropping up again up subconsciously.

I think I was trying to relate the individual to the whole here, without losing the beauty of the individual, the beauty that makes it an individual (even if it's only a blade of grass)

do you ever do that thing (sorry for my appalling grammar) where you take a blade of grass and hold it between your two thumbs, which are pressed together, and blow and make a high pitched whistling type sound?
