SoCS: Precious

Precious

Is the congregation of people

under a church’s steeple

in a mosque

praying in a temple

Precious

Are the poor and meek

and technology geek

daughters of the rich

sons of middle class

Precious

Multi-colored range of hues

those whose boundaries refuse

to hate the hateful

or exist with intolerance

Precious

Righteous sinners

lottery winners

the far-flung right

and the liberal left

Precious

Moms, dads, sisters, brothers

grandpa, grandma, plenty of others

family and friends

acquaintances, neighbors

Precious

Wisdom in the elderly

hotshot thinking cleverly

baby in its mother’s arms

tween with a fan-girl crush

Precious

All sizes and shapes

superheroes with capes

those unable to see

those who struggle to read

Precious

The lost and the found

wanderers who get around

a mystic with spirit

a realist who loves the facts

Precious

The world in large scope

nations perpetuating hope

countries at war

refugees seeking home

Precious

Humanity in embrace

millions of one face

they gather

in communal togetherness

call one another

Precious

It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

        We need more like this to unite us. We’re so divided right now. Makes me sad. Hoping your post rings true with others. Be nice to see a reblog bonanza πŸ˜‚
