Be a person here. Stand by the river, invoke the owls. Invoke winter, then spring. Let any season that wants to come here make its own call. After that sound goes away, wait. A slow bubble rises through the earth and begins to include sky, stars, all space, even the outracing, expanding thought. Come back…
“You are making a difference, whether you know it or not. So have no doubt about that. You did it again yesterday. The way you touched someone’s life just yesterday made a difference. And you are always doing that, do you know that? Yes, yes…your smile, your encouraging word, your willingness to just be “present”…
I’d like to set a challenge,
for us all to do a good deed..
Donate a toy to charity,
some “pet food” to the pound,
I am made of mush,
because my heart melted when I saw you,
Tail tucked between your legs. Confusion in your eyes, I know it’s hard to understand that someone heard your cries.
“I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!”
“I didn’t know others liked me so much.”
We hear so many ask….
What am I?
What am I to do?
But just to feel you have a friend,
Who will stand by until the end.
Maybe that man was just a homeless stranger, but to me he was more than that
When I was quite young, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember well the polished, old case fastened to the wall.
What if the little rain should say
‘So small a drop as I
Can ne’er refresh the thirsty field
I’ll tarry in the sky.’
In how many hours you have in a day, do you give, even a smile, even a handshake, even a word of encouragement!
