An act of kindness 

The bus driver waits
as the late passenger scurries for the bus. 

In a nearby street
bouquets of flower are tied to a tree,
remembering a dear friend that has fallen.
A child cries and mother wipes the tears away. 

An act of kindness,
someone is thoughtful,
someone cares.

Can one kind act save the world?
Yes…I think it has…
Heavenly kindness.
