Thursday June 23, 2011 Theme Thursday

Ourselves and Others

Theme Thursday prompt soft

“Be soft, even if you stand to get squashed.”  E.M. Forster

Ourselves and Others

Soft and it’s companion gentle

What we should  be when

Dealing with ourselves and others

We are all tender

And respond  best to soft… gentle

Almost anything can be said

When clothed in these words

A perfect basket in which

To keep loving kindness

Close at hand

Firm ground on which to stand

When dealing with ourselves

And others

A soft place to land

Teddy Bear
