Holder of the Universe




My job is to hold up the universe
That surrounds me.  The heft
Is greatest on overcast days
Or when someone hurts
Me or a loved one. The sunlight
Helps but  not as much as a kind,
Weightless word.

Yes, I think on the overcast days one feels the burden of holding up the universe most of all!

Those overcast days seem to have so much weight to them.

It's overcast here today too, and I'm also feeling a bit blue.. Your words have penetrated and reminded me of the value of a kind word.

Kindness always helps at such times....this truly resonates, Judy.

Kindness is almost always the cure, the answer. Here in Tucson we have an organization called "Ben's Bells" that has made being kind their mission.

Those weightless words.. indeed.. they can be better than any sunshine... Had some sunny days recently.. so I get by.
