day 20

When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. Matthew 14:14

when
we step over
the homeless on our way
      to buy another
      $5 coffee;
we give our
cast-offs to the
      shivering kids instead
      of a new coat;
we throw out
enough food to
      feed another
   family,
we have left our
compassion
back in the boat
once again.
