Compassion short poem

Photo by abhikrama

Compassion, so precious a gift
to all earthly things
So transient and dismally brief

Compassion, a myriad of tears
the hungry, desolate and grieving
A wish to share their pain and fears

Compassion, an opening of the heart
So warm
the soft flow of love
Boundless loving kindness as a start

Compassion, a feeling without boundaries
Creed or color
Just the urge to help
Allay their pain and agonies

From young, I have a love for the English Language and have been a voracious reader of novels, getting my fill from the British Council and later at the U.S.I.S. Clearly the writing style of UK and American authors is different.It is only about three years ago that I ventured into the world of poetry, and starting to pen my own poems. I find it gratifying and fulfilling to have an opportunity to put my thoughts, feelings and emotions into poems and haiku.
