two gifts of kindness

two gifts of kindness

last week,

when someone i admire made an ode of my broken words,
her kindness beamed like moonlight on a deep night.
giving and so precious.

when reading an interview of someone who's work i regard and follow,
to find my name mentioned in her list of inspirers
was heartwarming and humbling.

i'm still soaking wet in all that love
thank you with all of me.

two gifts of kindness
and a sincerely thankful heart.

. . .

wednesday, evening
the twenty fifth


let my thoughts come to you
when I am gone
like the afterglow of sunset
at the margin of starry silence
- rabindranath tagore -
