Thanks for stopping by to read my poems. These are just a select few from a collection of literally hundreds over the years...some long gone, others never to be seen by anyone's eyes.
I call writing serendipity for the soul because I never know what words are going to come through to my fingers. They always seem to be the right ones at the time ~ the pen knows =) Some of these poems are true, some are not, some are feelings I've experienced, some are other's feelings, some are old and some are REALLY old. Please don't ask, you're free to decide which are which, I'll never tell though some are pretty obvious.
Some of My Favorite Thoughts on Kindness
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single minute before starting to improve the world.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.
Kindness is the only service that will stand the storm of life and not wash out. It will wear well and will be remembered long after the prism of politeness or the complexion of courtesy has faded away.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
"Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits.
Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine
Kind words and kind deeds."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

About the Author
A writer is a person who cares what words mean,
what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are
their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them
with care, with thought, with fear, with delight.
~Ursula K. LeGuin
