The Power of Compassion

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Compassion is powerful
more than flowery love words
strong enough to
understand without

Compassion is forgiving
allowing what is
to simply, be.

Compassion is empathy
I know how you feel
for I’ve been there, too.

Compassion stems from Source
the well of love
with golden purity.
Compassion comes to be
a way of being
how one perceives the world
until one becomes
the compassionate heart
slowly beating across
the oceans of time.

      🙂 Doodled is right. I was so taken by Kristy’s line that I wanted to make it the first line of a poem I wrote. I love taking a line or phrase, a thought and creating off of it. I call it my borrowed poetry. I have enjoyed being a guest writer on your blog, Barbara. Thanks so much for inviting me to write about compassion, a favorite topic here on Source of Inspiration. hugs, pat
