Power of Love
By Don Iannone

Moved by a river of tears
straight from the heart,
flowing freely,
filled with compassion
for those who suffer.
No magic wand
to wave over the world,
but loving kindness
powerful enough
to still hearts
tormented and ruptured
by neglect and broken promises.
It's simple.
Just care.

Thanks Margie, and you as well.

"caring" lost its "meaning" now, I guess. "Carnage" struck my mind.

We should all care, no more magic needed. Just care is the solution.
My favorite lines 'Moved by a river of tears' and 'by neglect and broken promises'. Such heartfelt poetry

Don Iannone said...

Thanks ufukhati. Nice poetic lines you strung together.

Thanks Dumbdodi. Yes, it is about caring. "I care" says so much to me about the position of one's being in relation to the whole of the universe.

I guess this comes from being acquianted with suffering. Compassion.

Don Iannone said...

Thanks Kathleen. Your kindness is felt.

Thanks Imemine. Indeed we learn from our suffering and pain and eventually find compassion for others and ourselves.

Thanks Gangadhar. You take care as well.
