Thinking of the world ills.
Afghanistan, Haiti, New South Wales, Victoria.
Offering a prayer, turning into actions.
Writing poems and stories striving to find the universal in the particular.
Thinking any of us with the privilege of peace and choice, and health,
can to be thankful and helpful to all we can.
Be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness,
and a home to the stranger.
Be eyes to the blind,
and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring.
Be a breath of life to the body of humankind,
a dew to the soil of the human heart,
and a fruit upon the tree of humility.
