kind·ness  'kin(d)nis noun :   the quality of being friendly, 
generous, and considerate

kindness (lower case)

tastes of warmth and liquid and a little salt
the perfect spoonful held up to waiting lips

smells of bread baking at the moment of
its crust cracking with yeasty life rising

sounds of songs and whispered prayers
offered into eagerly waiting hungry ears

looks like a tenderly kept field of wheat
golden in its giving for the sheer beholding

feels like gentle hands clasping the soles
of feet worn by life and time and far too
much the cruelty of indifference
