Kindness

A burst of beauty among daily thorns of life is a welcome smile.

The Gift

Hospitality

I open my arms to you

From my heart to yours

The Sower

The Sower – Vincent Van Gogh

He tossed seeds day and night

Everywhere he went, to all he met

Never accusing them wrong or right

He gave freely, never incurring debt

 

Yet, his seed packet never emptied

He always managed to pull more out

Those who had it all, he never envied

He just did good, never seeking clout

 

Many a day he pat a stray dog’s head

and listened to frustrations of a friend

He took time with family to break the bread

His tools or labor to all he would lend

 

He offered car rides to those who needed

And smiled at the children in the park

He gave a handshake or hug to all he greeted

And worked at home well into the dark

 

He gave money to the homeless on the street

And encouraged those whose spirits were down

He was a man who never accepted defeat

And upon his face was never once a frown

 

Everywhere perchance he dropped a seed

Blossoms of all colors began to grow

Whether it kindness or honesty in need

Love took root wherever he sowed
