Revd Tim Heaton’s Thought for the Day
Day 15 Thursday, 19 November
The squirrels are busy burying acorns and hazelnuts all over the garden, food for the coming winter. I find it extraordinary how they remember where every cache is.
And in the field behind the cottage a lone knapweed flower, purple and majestic, bobs in the morning sunshine, clinging to life in this dying November world. William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence comes to mind:
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
