This story shines my Christmas—

For more than 40 years, this 92 years old lady of scarcity, from Tay Ninh , near Saigon, has quietly bought, picked up, got given with small pieces of cloth of every kinds to sew up with an old machine to make quilts, blankets for the poor, the out-of-luck, the homeless.


Gracefully she did
The city flies in Love
The heart weaves warmth
Many have got it

The large hands
The stooping spine
The feet and joints pushing on the pedal
The quilts, blankets
       kamala of compassion
                 physically and spiritually
Oh, I want to cry
                      The door is wide open
Life is Beautiful.
