Random Acts of Kindness

The best rewards are
surprises. Sunbeams knifing
through clouds to warm
you when you’re dressed
too lightly for the weather.
A stranger dashing out into
the street to help you
gather your wind-blown papers.
A poem written in the droplets
of condensation on a window.
A smile and a “hello” from a
passerby. The gift of love.
We are rewarded for our
ability to feel and be moved.
The best rewards are
Undeserved surprises.
