small kindnesses


I turn and watch
see the face beside me
engaged in frustration
pulling out the correct amount
for coffee
her four-year-old pulling at her jacket
distraction is the flavor of the day

she searches for a penny or a nickel or something
torn between two worlds

my five is ready
I place it on the counter quickly
just to see her eyes change
to see the person underneath

startled, she reveals just a bit
all in her eyes

  1. Beauty in the mundane. Kindness to perfectly fit the situation. Lovely poetry on a summer morn. Thank you my friend.
