>starting over we write poems #27 healing

>On the mending side of time …
All passes through glances
of sincerity – smooth voices
are captured with tone

Felt by some of those
looking for solace,
Healing areas once open,
maturating with rage

A tender hand comes across
to touch the injured soul
Kindness to one wronged
Healing has begun
