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!

    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
    aslant in their pigeonholes
    green eyeshade slows sight
