A Little Kindness Never Hurts

When I see a homeless man or woman
 I instantly just throw prayer their way.
When with a little, child I will listen,
No matter if it takes them long to say

What in their mind they feel is important.
It helps to build their sense of worth, I know.
I always give compliments to strangers
Even if they regard me as their foe.

You never know what stresses they might have,
Nor how your comment could just be that light
That causes them to seek a kinder path
When their emotions rue the darkest night.

Animals see me as a pied piper...
They somehow feel my aura loves them so.
Even if they seem quite temperamental
They follow me where ever I might go.

I work my magic best with reiki hands
I volunteer my time and help to heal
Those infirm or injured in hospital
With universal energy that's real.

Last not least, I sign numbers for the deaf.
They greet me wth happy smiling faces.
They adore playing Bingo each Wednesday.
I'm rich with love, from so many places.

Hello Connie, I spoke to a homeless woman while in a line up for a cup of coffee. We had a good chat, and before she left she wished me well. We made each others day. have a nice evening my friend.

was seeing this one again and thinking, if you took out just one stanza somewhere, you could use it in one of Brian's contests. which poem of mine were you saying I did not enter in a contest yet? I missed the punny pies contest but will type up my entry and maybe give it to Brian next week.

Yes...the Punny pie, I was asking which one you forgot to enter. I could take out the third stanza I guess....but I have one that I can enter that only has 14 lines. I am going to write you....thanks : )

I am SO sorry this gem did not get into the contest on time. DANG it, Connie. you are so much better than I am with small children and with the elderly. You truly do a LOT of good things and I am humbled by that. I just kind of keep to myself inside my house. I think if I ever did charity volunteer work, I would only want to work at an animal shelter!

Just look at all the things you do to help others, Connie. This is just part of your nature and animals sense these things, just as humans do. Keep spreading that healing energy, my friend. This would have made a wonderful entry for Brenda's contest. Love, Carolyn
