In kindness there is a softness that
is warm and infinitely spacious.
Kindness lives in my breath-
and travels all through my physical body
nourishing me with Presence and light.
Kindness is the magic wand of Love-
allowing everything to be here now as it is.
A great exhale - a rest- a nest-
a settling into a vast comfortable chair,
wider than wide.
This kindness is healing-
the medicine for every sorrow and fear.
Kindness is my bedtime story;
A cup of tea with a friend;
A soft whisper in my ear that everything is ok.
Kindness spreads from my heart
like a thousand butterflies leaving their chrysalis.
A smile, a tear, a sob, a clenched heart, a worry-
kindness is the tenderness that invites them all into Her lap to rest.
