TOUCH -Sharon's Acrostic contest

Tenderness exudes from him as he takes the hand

Of the woman, sick and frail; he’s a gifted man.

Uncommonly calm, he utters, “God has a plan.”

Consoling her, he is guided to soothe her soul and

Heal her body, for God’s spirit tells him he can.

June 27, 2017  For Sharon Gulley's Touch Me With Words Poetry Contest

I like this :) I do believe touch can heal as well as hurt. Ok, I finally posted " Just A Little Humor", I wasn't sure I liked it. :)

Gee Andrea, this SO fits in with my belief.the brevity of this piece makes it "holy" . This is what sets you apart from many others. This is real art.

Wonderful acrostic, my friend - I'm glad this made the winner's list, (though I would have placed it higher) ... mine did not make the list at all. This is being fav-ed.
