God walks with bare feet

Leaves His sandals on my step

Knowing He’ll make dew

This is an older post that I feel compelled to resurrect today as I read the wonderful words of kindness, gratitude and humility that are spilling across the pages of the wonderful blogs I visit. Thank you for reminding me that it is the little things that matter and are the most powerful–the thank yous, the anonymous visits, the smile in the eyes of a child, the crash of a wave on the shore, the gentle breeze, one kind word. Kindness is all around us if we only choose to see it.

 

 gratitude

 

one single taproot grows the tree

one silent ripple rocks the sea

and lonesome does our one moon stand

yet lulls the water to the sand

 

a breath of wind, of humble power

gives flight to seed to grow the flower

and one stone more will part the stream

when hopeless did the passing seem

 

it seems we notice one subtracted-

a moment spent, one word retracted

unconscious of  ethereal  kindness

we walk the shore in partial blindness….

 

The might of one we fail to see

when cloaked in sweet simplicity
