the simple helping hand-up
the moment of courtesy to another
the good deed unheralded and unrewarded
the recipient who rests in its quiet joy
the love that gives until the vessel is empty
only to pour yet more love
why do we mock these simplest acts mightier than war?
why do we make hash of all that is holy?
what is it about the earth that makes it so hard
to wise up?
