This work has reached the exceptional level
A soul can heal

Compassion Cares

by Realist101

Without the breasts of earth and sky
A living soul will cringe and die

To walk alone on barren ground
A heart will cry, without a sound

Along with sun and freshened airs
A mind can heal, compassion cares

And dampened spirit can rebound
To bring it up and back around

Into the light of living days
Away from saddened, rainy haze ...

Without the earth beneath our shoes
No sun or moon can best bemuse

The life we hold so dear and near
Would only be an empty tear

So thankful is the heartened one
To live and laugh, beneath the sun ...

Poem of the Month contest entry


Each day is a blessing, for the most part, until someone steps into your world and tears it apart. We have to try and live anyway. Thank you for reading and to cmeyers for this gorgeous photo.
