Kindness Poem | Haiku Poetry About Compassion
Her soul touches mine
My heart listens to her heart
My eyes cry with hers
* * *
Somewhere deep inside
I feel the weeping heartache
Torn apart by pain
* * *
Grief stricken body
alters our heart rhythm for
ever and ever
December 1, 2008
Poet, student of kabbalah, & homeopath

Today's Haiku was inspired by Tzvi Freeman's
Thought for Today about Compassion
"What is the difference between kindness and compassion?
Kindness gives to another.
Compassion knows no "other"."
* * *
Definition: Compassion: Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.
Comment: Can simply listening help relieve another person's suffering?
Question: Is compassion without judgment?

- All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives. Dalai Lama
- Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive. Dalai Lama
- Compassion brings us to a stop, and for a moment we rise above ourselves. Mason Cooley
- If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. Dalai Lama
- But a compassion for that which is not and cannot be useful and lovely, is degrading and futile. Ralph Waldo Emerson

From the moment the heart begins beating until the moment it stops at death, the human heart pumps the lifeblood throughout the body. In an average lifetime, the heart beats more than two and a half billion times. In times of stress the pressure builds up, the heart beats faster and harder to move the blood. Under great stress the heart may stop. We do not ask it to beat, yet it keeps us alive as a constant companion. Take a moment of silence to feel the wonder ~ to meditate on the heart. Can you hear or feel it beating?
Modern medicine and technology understands some of the mechanisms and can make repairs to the organ itself. However, the emotional impacts and changes are beyond man's capacity to change. Only compassion can heal and assist the deeper aspect of our life's blood.

Give thanks for the heart's majesty.
