I Have Seen a Simple Act of Kindness

I have seen a simple act of kindness

Remind the darkened house of the body

To light up with breath,

Become a waystar in the night sky

Guiding the bird of daylight

To fly into the heart and sing.

I have seen the sun

On an old woman’s face

Become the forgotten language

Of thanksgiving  for bringing

Her home.

It takes so little

To change the world.
