Trusty

Don’t be fooled by appearance,

Bravado

Or pomp.

Fiduciaries of trust

Aren’t those loudly declaring

The draining of swamps,

But those who watch out

For dereliction of duty

Against trolls

Full of tromp.

Fraud or Dare

When your mind wants one truth

But all facts show another,

Will you see what is there

Or mold sooth as you’d rather?

When you seek to believe

What you wish

Not what’s real,

Will you claim truth a fraud

Or urge gyp

Be revealed?

Believe

Believe we can.

Believe we will.

Believe the way is there

Still,

To achieve.

Believe good lasts.

Believe hearts care.

Believe compassion

Matters,

Everywhere.

It may be fashionable to be unkind,

To dismiss civility as weak

And see polite discourse

As reflecting ‘snowflake’ fragility.

One wonders, though,

About the price of bullish ways

On our children

Who are learning

Not what we say

But what we model.

Will they grow to celebrate insult

As denoting power,

And be enthused

By pseudo-charm;

Or will they see

The true resilience of empathy

So hate and war

Can finally be

Disarmed?

No Vacancy

Deny hate a room

In your heart

Anywhere.

Fill it instead

With soul truths:

The sweet breath

Of infants

Asleep against your chest.

Does not differentiate

Who is worthy of care.

Deny hate a room.

Allow compassion

Instead

To take hold

Everywhere.

Valuable Interest

measure

Not all interest

Pays dividends.

Not all attention

Is of value.

Too often what’s at stake

Is a diversion

To some bias of

Profit,

When in truth

The real returns

Are found in

Empathy, and

Real growth is in

Addressing prejudice,

Resolving hate

And healing

Conflict.

How much will it help

If we can

Get ourselves out of our own corners,

Out of righteous

Stiffened chins

For right or wrong?

Maybe round out those

Hardened edges

So we no longer must

Contrast

One side

With another,

Or need to confront

A person’s sigh

With slight or fault.

Can we

Perhaps

Find common ground

In what may be beyond

All argument:

If we rotate

Long enough

Around a circle

We will eventually

See

More than

Our current

Vantage point.

Coincidence of Fate

Lookig back DvoraFreedman

You are no accident.

This time.

This place.

Your presence is

If not pre-ordained

Then an absolute responsibility,

Manifesting

With each moment

Every action

Of said and unsaid,

In a remarkable

Synchronicity

For opportunity

And fate.

Pamper someone

Today.

Cosset Mother Earth, and

Attend with care

To all her beings.

Indulge your loved ones, and

See to those who hurt.

Let others see to you.

Pamper someone

Today.

You will spoil nothing

By offering a plenty

In kindness

To others

And to you.
