An Effect to Affect

(Dedicated to Mahak Malik)

One stone
skipped across
the river
can create
a ripple
of energy
that expands

One star
shooting through
the sky
can grant
a wish
with its light
that lasts

One smile
to a stranger
on the street
might just
inspire them
to get up
on their feet
with faith
in humanity

One word
in kindness
to an angel
that has fallen
on tough times
could help them
new wings
and soar back
into God’s
good graces.
