Acceptance


http://magpietales.blogspot.com/


They come from everywhere
or anywhere
To rest
upon its shabby, unbiased form
Waiting for the train
or life
Or simply to escape
a sudden thunder-storm
A humble, red shoulder
of compassion
In a world of
concrete indifference

  3. Thank-you Laurie. I like your see-saw poem, but did not realize it also included the wordle challenge. I love how, in the end motherly understanding and grace over-ruled frustration...
