Selfless Gestures

Comb for selflessness
Appreciate, give joy to
Those less fortunate

Care for who have none
Charity begins at home
True goodwill gestures

Written for Haiku Heights, #23 – Charity
Also for One Single Impression, #148 – Comb

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. People who have plenty should care for those who have none.
    Charity does begin at home because, you should take care of family and people close to you before you worry about the world. 🙂
