FRIDAY WRITINGS.   Magaly suggests we put a twinkle in our wrinkle.  I incorporated it into a poem of things I wonder about.  If only we each acknowledged the power of one!  (The art is my own).  Submitted to Poets and Storytellers United, March 25, 2022



How are you, we ask …
Do we really want to know
or is it just another way to say hello?
Are we too busy to listen
or merely too self-absorbed?
Could we save someone’s life
merely by listening to unsaid words
Could we make the world a better place
simply by each taking time to care?
Could we start a kindness pandemic
and spread kindness everywhere
Could we take time to put twinkles
in our time-worn wrinkles

Can we ever learn the power of one?


  1. If folks haven't learned this wisdom by adulthood, there is scant hope. I love what you have composed and gifted us today.

  2. I would love to be one of the many in a kindness pandemic. I would love for the spread to grow chronic, incurable... to fill the hearts and days of each and every one of us.

    Great things start with one.

  3. I love both the art and the poem. We must never forget how powerful we really are!

  4. I love the idea of being part of a kindness pandemic.

  5. Kindness pandemic... sounds beautiful..and how badly do we need one right now!

  6. A kindness pandemic sounds really lovely right now. Sign me up!

  7. I can't change the world but I can change the world within myself. That may be the only power of one I can provide.
    Hope that's enough.
