For You


Here is a wagon of flowers for you
to thank you for all the good work you do.
In terrible times, you still pull through.
You inspire me to do all that I can, too.


While the world lurches from one crisis to another, I'm tempted to curl up in a blanket and hope everything will quietly improve on its own.


But no.


When I look for silver linings, I see people pitching in all over the place, largely unrecognized, trying to make the world safer and cleaner and fairer.


This tiny token of appreciation is for everyone who feeds hungry people, registers voters, sews for sustainability, picks up trash, studies and educates, contacts legislators, marches for justice, knocks doors for trustworthy political candidates, does anything and everything to help. Thank you!


Today's Poetry Friday Roundup is at Sloth Reads. Enjoy!
