Windows Open the Mind

Always looking, waiting for
beauty and peace of
children laughing and playing,
dangling feet from a swing
ever ready to leap
finding new adventures
grey skies and blue
harbor moments of
knowing that all of
life is
meant to place me in the
opening a
portal glimpsing into a world
quite unknown but
staring, I gaze
through the
veneer each day a
window into pervasive
xenophobia drawing a
yearning for
zealous kindness.

. . .

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary.
—Khalil Gibran

Let’s get to know one another. You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.  Every Saturday, I send a brief newsletter to share life’s moments to uplift and add a little more kindness into the world with words and photographs. You can sign up here. Thanks!

And always—Be kind. Be brave. Be you.
