Openhearted Wise

I have grown accustom to a different kind of love
One which expects nothing and ignores the best I'm of
Cynical and bracing for the worst of all good turns
Today the fulcrum shifted towards easier goodness earned

Today I'll go back towards an effortless fold of joy
An effortless fold to welcoming my unique envoy
Kindness sending ahead waves of gratitude
Kindness sending with it unfamiliar offerings deployed

Love without the romance
Love without the ties
Love without a pairing
From any who defy

Acquaintances and others
Brought in with this tide
Are the very creme of humanity's
Openhearted wise.

-Kelly Voelker
