Compassion

Compassion often immerges with weeping of the rain

It can’t be rinsed away though, that truth dwells deep inside

Practice lovingkindness and then yes, do it again

Compassion often immerges with weeping of the rain

Dancing dreams and quiet places may ease the pain

Love’s not bells and flowers, it’s keeping kindness by your side

Compassion often immerges with weeping of the rain

It can’t be rinsed away though, that truth dwells deep inside

  1. A lot of truth in just a few lines – repetition welcome! And “keeping kindness by your side” is a phrase I’ll repeat inwardly again and again. A mantra for all encounters (even those with my own insecurities).

    1. Thanks, Jazz. I was playing with the poetic form called a triolet and it calls for repetition. I am glad that phrase on kindness spoke to you. It is a good companion. Glad you stopped by and I appreciate your comment.
