to see the world...
...in the strawberries I had for breakfast
...in the weeds that are taking over the yard
...in the dove that spends her days outside the bedroom window
...in the daisies and bleeding hearts fresh from the nursery
...in the new sprouts that will bear fruit months from now
...in the snake who slithered away from Hermie
...in the banana I snacked on this afternoon
...in the sky so blue it takes my breath away
...in the sunshine that kisses my shoulders
...in a single bean

I love this photo :)

Is the poem you're thinking of by William Blake? It reminds of the beginning of his piece "Auguries of Innocence".

"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."

This was also used in the first "Tomb Raider" movie. But I like your version too :~)

The quote is either Tao or Buddha, my sister got a pair of earrings that said something like "To see the world in a single bean." but not sure who said it or if I have it quite right. :) Thank you for all of the lovely comments.
