Hearts With Wings

Hearts With Wings

Hearts With Wings, my Sister called them,

not the common name, Bleeding Hearts,

a name so scorned by those whose Hearts

are deadened by indifference, hate, jealousy,

lacking sympathy or empathy for others

whose Hearts are grieving loss or that of others…

My Sister has a Heart With Wings-

a Heart filled with compassion, kindness

and selfless caring- that love in action

of swift response to another’s need-

to others’ pleads for help by word or act

with effective skills and knowledge

grown wiser through understanding.

In times of challenge, Hearts and Minds rise or fall.

Such times are these and challenge all.

May everyone on this dear Earth lift up

Life here and raise their Hearts With Wings.

(May 10, 2021- Shelley Wilson)
