to the small poem and the quiet voice within

I longed
for some love
and he reached in his pocket
for a quarter.

    I wonder if a quarter was love
    to him
    so much expressed in so few words~

    I love what this poem says. We have different ways of showing love. It depends on who we are and what we have and what the moment is. Thanks for sharing this one.
