Tolerance Disconnected

gentle tolerance
forgives the aggrieved, looks back
at errors, walks on
open path discovers
unexpected redemption

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

unspoken words shout
disconnected quietness
night  envelopes dream
shroud of silent tolerance
dissipates at dawn

Both Sunday Scribblings (disconnected) and One Single Impression (tolerance) dish up some powerful words today.

I am sitting in the outdoor living room of our patio and enjoying this glorious day!

    I love that ‘gentle tolerance’ finds ‘unexpected redemption’, beautiful words.

    Looking at how you have used the word, tolerance, it strikes me that it is a double edge sword. It is both forgiving and accepting of ill.

    I love the first poem – it is the way we should be, but I am sorry to say that I have lived the second many times.

    Having lost my cool with a friend who hurt me very badly this week, I find these words to be a healing balm, a gentle nudge to be gracious.

    night envelopes sleep
