Do One Thing

Do one thing today
that smacks of love.
Don’t bother with if
or how it will be received.
If this is a stumper
here’s something –
look up (make eye contact)
and tell the sky thank you
for being the sky.
Should this lead to other things,
say being flabbergasted at how 
clouds float, or curious as to who’s
in seat 7B in that airplane,
or imagining you are a jay
that could fly, fly away
then you’ve done at least
two lovely things today,
maybe even more.
You can still do this
if its raining, but it’ll look different.

    I greeted everyone I passed on the street yesterday with “Good Morning”. All but one responded. She was a teenager with headphones on. Felt good!

    or find a child, and look through his/her eyes at the world.
