Kindness Scattered

A group of writers were asked what we can do to scatter more kindness this year. One responded with poetry.

 

KINDNESS SCATTERED
by EsterFlowers1

Empathy takes little heart;

Coins in cups to pay your part,

Scattering, like chicken feed

To fellow human beings in need.

– Or so I was told, at corruptible age,

By one who I always considered quite sage.

 

Now I know kindness is not coins in cups;

It’s the laughter that cures the ill of hiccups.

It’s a sharing of honest reflections and ken.

It’s the nod which passes between two worthy men.

It’s the dog that comes sniffing at trembling hands.

-All those big little things humankind understands.

 

Karen Kitchel is passionate about scattering kindness. Currently she serves meals to the homeless, is a volunteer teacher, writer, job coach and mentor.
