The Street Corner, The Man, and the Lesson

Age Group: Adult


"The Street Corner, The Man and the Lesson"

by AmberMoonstone 2/10/06

On the way to work last week,
I stopped at the red light,
In that intersection,
I saw him.

I was overcome with emotion,
In a matter of a red light,
I was forever changed.

He was dressed in dirty clothes,
with a torn hat, ripped gloves,
worn out boots.

This man, standing on this street corner,
reached down and picked up
the biggest clump of garbage.
It looked like a street sculpture
of littering trash.

I watched him pick it up,
walk over to a dumpster
and throw it away.
Somehow in that instant
I began to cry.

Here was this man,
downtrodden, with nothing,
caring about this street corner.
This gesture, made me
realize how much we take for granted.

I was crying because of his compassion,
and his love for the beauty of the environment.
I was awoken to the beauty of the day
on that morning.

I was reminded to be careful and to
take care of Mother Earth.

I go the same way everyday,
stop at that same light,
and smile with tears in my eyes.

"Thank you, and bless you",
I say as I drive through that intersection.

I look for this man,
but he has not been there
this week.

Each day, I send out blessings to him.
I am sure he is receiving them,
and perhaps that is why,
I cannot find him on that street corner!




Author's Notes: I was truly moved by this small act of caring. I now hope I never see him again! I am sending out good energy and positive karma so that his life is going well.
The small things in life are the most important ones.

Peace, Love and Light,
Amber Moonstone
