A poem about kindness

By Talia DevoraPublished 10 months ago 1 min read

You know

that feeling

when you’ve been gifted

a pineapple

to indulge in

during summer days in the sunshine?!

I do, for sure!!!!!

Kindness and graciousness

from strangers and new friends

is as juicy and tropical

as a bowl of pre-cut pineapple.

Heart-melting compliments,

unexpected, discretionary, and purposeful visits with the elderly and most vulnerable,

freely distributing your snacks and treats to the homeless,

playing with a lonesome puppy,

and teaching a young child a valuable skill

are pineapples for your soul;

they give you the spiritual sweetness you need to be soulfully satisfied.

Whenever it’s possible,

pour a glass

of your exotic, freshly squeezed, and inner pineapple juice,

and give it to someone

who’s thirsty for sweetness!

We all need to gulp down

a generous glass

of pineapple juice;

we’re seriously dehydrated

from the everlasting meanness

in our world.
