entry for writer's cramp
a small act of kindness

it's all I have to counter
this daily news of rage, of terror:
a painted stone left on a shelf
pocket change left behind
a coffee paid forward
a sharp, sarcastic retort unsaid.

I think of them as mandalas for peace
underground like cedar roots
their scent perfuming the acrid earth.

Small acts of kindness,
it's all I have.
