Solicitude…

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
― Desmond Tutu

swans

I watched these swans gracefully glide across the pond, showing such concern and love for each other…
it was beautiful to see…

in acres of sadness, where hope is sparse,
kindness brings healing to broken hearts…

and nature explodes with gentleness
in outpourings of elegance,
reflections
of kindness everywhere,
taking Earthlings unawares,
in movements of authentic concern,
solicitude’s splendor,
being observed…

let’s cultivate it, wherever we go,
on our sleeves,
let it show!
growing it in our gardens with love,
letting it shower us
from above…

breathing it in
exhaling it out
permitting it to scatter all about…

Being alive…

“Said the river: imagine everything you can imagine, then keep on going.”
― Mary Oliver

surreal atmospheres

In surreal atmospheres,
our spirits are freed,
with lingering tinctures
anxiety recedes…
Absorbed by landscapes of
Divine being,
we’re swept with tides of invincible feelings…
