KINDNESS… a pantoum


There is no ponder to an act of kindness

Kindness comes as it will like breathing

It is the only pathway to peace and love

A lay down of all that holds us to fear and resistance

 

Kindness comes as it will like breathing

There is never a time it doesn’t caress the heart

A lay down of all that holds us to fear and resistance

Choices lead to consequences

 

There is never a time it doesn’t caress the heart

Fear stains the heart’s beat with certain death

Choices lead to consequences

Sequences, like bad habits need adjusting

 

Fear stains the heart’s beat with certain death

In your defenselessness your safety lies

Sequences, like bad habits need adjusting

How will you adjust to Kindness’s call?

 

In your defenselessness your safety lies

It is the only pathway to peace and love

How will you adjust to Kindness’s call?

There is no ponder to an act of kindness

Fear Or LOve… Boston, Texas, The World.


18th day, NaPoWriMo

 

I thought I might not ‘go’ to the tragedy of Boston, of Texas, the spots of angry fire, and fear, with all the pain of it, the anguish of it.  My inclination is to seek some joy past the horror and grief.  To not join in with the fear, to not feed it the food of my angry/sad feelings and still feel deeply, passionately, without avoidance.  Fear is not what I wish to feed.  And feelings are not for my evasion; necessary to have so they don’t build in my body and create a whole other kind of pain.  And in this mix of emotions stirred by personal and world events, I invite grace and gratitude, joy and peace, into the cauldron, while I stir in love and the spirit of Oneness that I believe we all share in.

 

I will not feed the fear

In the having of feelings

that get drench and expose

burned and seared with the

incomprehensible

 

Comprehending the allowance

of loss as it fills me

letting in what will tear

away in that vast salty

ocean of endings

 

Grateful for the salty

bouncy in the fear of

drowning rising to the

surface a buoy bobbing

seeking a safe shore

 

I will not feed the fear

in the having of feelings

that need to be felt

in the vulnerability

of living love expressively

 

Of rising to an angry

cause to pray away

unfathomable acts of

violence that feed the

fear and fearful

 

I will have my

sorrow

I will have my

rage

I will have my

Joy

I will have my

Peace

 

I will have all of me

And

Today

I will feed forgiveness
