Musing on a Street Symphony

train2Rumble, rattle and groan
The box cars and the bridge
Compose a symphony
Sweet reverberations
Echoing down the street
Canopied by the trees
Each box car plays its part
Wears anonymous art
From city to city
A free show on the go
Stop and smell the diesel
Paint fumes do not linger

    Interesting post. As an old gal who was raised to think of everyone else first–it’s a long list, so my feelings/needs rarely got noticed, let alone attended to–skipping to the “Be Kind” might work for me. As a Christian, it occurs to me that the Biblical instructions to love, and show mercy and generosity, don’t include a paragraph about mind-reading the other person’s past troubles. It’s a simple command to love, forgive, be merciful, give what you have to meet the immediate need–not fix their whole life. When Jesus asks us to be like Him, He’s well aware we haven’t been endowed with His ability to know All–except in special circumstances where the Holy Spirit gives revelation. We don’t need revelation to Be Kind–we can just choose to Do It, in His Name. Thanks for the ponder today–I’m still working on the Letting Go part. God bless you.
