Dripping Gratitude

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

Kindness is a hidden stream,
in cool green woods
A sun shower, brief, bright, unexpected.

Compassion is waterfalls with rainbows
pouring over the cliffhanger,
just as she’s about to drop.

Awash in buckets of pleasure
I dance in the raindrops of beneficence,
a child happily puddle-jumping.

Words wiped away despair,
gliding past shards of pain,
to reach this mosaic person.

You cared more than you had to.
I stand saturated, dripping
gratitude all over your rug.

Thank you for your kind words and for reading this.

I have felt like a "clif hanger' more than once, but
luckily saved by kindness.

Wishing you whatever you need most today, and praying for a speedy delivery.

Gentle hugs, Laura
