poetic puzzle #d’Verse

So much fragility about
Harm causes more alarm
Anger not realistic
Rather patience and understanding
Eventually things will calm

listen wisely, wait to speaK
put others first no need for I
smartest base for sanity to deepeN
kindness is what we all neeD
financially and emotionally brokeN
panicked about how to survivE
practical help best supportS
negotiation of our current crisiS

d’Verse, poetic puzzle, Lillian

  1. You handled the Acrostic Plus very well! Kindness…..such a necessity these past 18 months. I like these words especially
    “Rather patience and understanding
    Eventually things will calm”
    AND the idea that listening is a huge plus. (I took a graduate level course in The Art of Listening — just an excellent course!)

    • thanks Carolyn, now I’ve discovered unsplash I doubt I need my camera anymore 🙂

      Jackie Chan is a hero of mine, been watching his movies since my teens … had a boyfriend who was a kung fu master so he may have influenced me a bit!

        • I bought I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action in the early 2000’s and I’ve read it several times. The other one I don’t own, but it’s a great read, too. His childhood was so interesting and wild even. I thought in many ways very sad. 😦
          In the first book I mentioned he even lists ALL of his major injuries in his lifetime! 😮 🙂
