A season for compassion

Wandering in my garden after the snow,
I declare this the season for compassion:
Not knowing which — in their bedraggled state —
are weeds and which are welcome,
I practice non-judgment and admire their persistence;
non-violence, and leave them where they grow;
forgiveness, for being less than perfect;
and mindfulness, to learn what they might teach me.
