Right On Target

Bullseye with arrow in the middle

I gave life to a word today

I released it in haste

It formed like an arrow

Piercing its target deep

In regret I tried

To take it back

But it still

Left a

Mark

I gave life to a word today

Releasing it with tenderness

It formed like an a heart

Hugging its target tight

Awaking lost dreams

To hope again

Happily it

Left a

Mark

Double Nonet

Be careful how you speak and what words you bring to life as they all leave a mark and make a difference.

Inner Reflection

Kindness in a person graphic

Kindness, a treasure

That’s outwardly visable,

Comes from within

Senryu

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness. —George Sand
