A Picture Says It All


Drawing by Melba Christie (c) 2020

Remember

No matter where you are on this great planet

No matter what language you speak

The symbol above is quite universal

Our hearts all beat the same

Take a minute and listen to your heart beating

It may sound a little louder, A little bolder

because our hearts are beating in unison

more than ever.

God bless you all.

Gentle Intelligence


Some would call her a little slow;

others never labeled her but

just accepted her “as is”.

Today I discover we are all wrong.

I found that in her heart lives a song

to be played and registered as an opus

announcing an intelligence

unknown to us

the ones who know it all.

Her insight blinded

by our failure to see the truth

hidden in her gentle soul.

From her I learn

humility and the meaning

of unconditional love

and compassion.

A lesson I will never forget.
