The Human Connection
A carefree child's laughter floated on the breeze,
Kissed a passing robin and rustled leafy trees.
A leaf then fell from off the tree onto a young boy's kite,
Twined itself about the string and floated out of site.
It came to rest upon a bench well-hidden in a glade
Where a solitary woman sat silently and prayed.
The leaf caught her attention brilliant color, form and grace.
She felt compelled to touch it, hold it soft against her face.
And without an explanation her heart felt more at ease
Words of quiet comfort seemed to echo in the trees.
And somewhere a child's laughter floated softly in the breeze.
