The Treasure

There are pieces of my spirit
In all that I create
Offers of connectedness
I hope will resonate

May you find that what I write
Is loving, kind, and true
And invites a deeper delving
Into the treasure that is you

May these bridges of love
Remind all my sisters and brothers
Of the greatness and the goodness
Within yourselves and others
–Russ Towne

  2. For my friend Russ

    Your kind and caring words,
    mean so very much.
    The love and sincerity within you,
    shines through to those you touch.

    We are blessed to have you in this world,
    to guide and to encourage.
    You make the world a better place,
    with every post and message.

    Thank you for brightening up my day,
    with every single post.
    So on that note all I have to say is
    to you, my friend, a toast.

    Meg 😀

      I’ll drink to that! Wow! Thank you, Meg. I’m deeply honored! I know how much time, effort, thought, and heart can go into writing a poem, and for you to do all that for me leaves me stunned and speechless. Thank you for the awesome gift, my gifted friend. I love it!

      What do you say
      When someone does something so kind
      It takes your breath and words away
      When “Thank you” is not nearly enough
      But are the only words you’ve got
      What do you say?
      –Russ Towne

      Thank you, Meg.

  3. This is lovely. It reminds me of “Before you speak ask yourself three things, “Is it true, is it kind, is it necessary?”


  4. Yours is a generous soul, Russ….
