< Poems by Joe Kelly >

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.
