A Small World of Interest

I developed an interest

in the world surrounding me

searching to making things better

this is what I did see

 

A man was hungry

alone and cold

took him food and a coat

he did not look so old

 

An elderly person

lonely this day

we spent time talking

a smile gave way

 

I planted some herbs

basil, oregano, and thyme

nurtured the soil

placed them in the sunshine

 

My interest in the world

produced a dividend

things began to happen

it was not the end

 

The homeless man

shared what he had

gave to another

one not so well clad

 

The elderly woman

passed the smile on

visited other residents

now not so withdrawn

 

God blessed my garden

it is now bountiful

sharing the harvest

it is quite wonderful
