Kindness Glitters

Sun rises above the hill
in the straggly sheep’s eye
kindness glitters
in quiet reassurance

the sweetness of our exchange
moves with me through the day
while I edit the image
polish away the overexposure
on a blade of grass
reduce the size for easy download
press the publish button
watch it fly and trust
it will be seen by whoever
needs to see it right now

like the silver-haired lady
on the other side of the world
no longer able to step outside and catch
the sun rise above the hills

she feels the kindness in
the straggly sheep’s eye
a quiet reassurance of
what the day’s weather will be
