Fun from LHN for this week’s prompt at Featured Fiction. A hidden treasure 🙂

LOVE HAPPY NOTES - The Home of Inspiration, Happiness and Fun

“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
― Anne Frank, diary of Anne Frank
Pelican, the joy of giving, manipulation, freedom

Peter Cheater, web-slinger of dishonesty
suffered from kindness poverty
He lied, stole, cajoled oodles, kits, caboodles
from humans, to butterflies to labradoodles

Penelope had the world on a string
Thunderstruck, Peter’s ‘petered out’ heart began singing
Penelope received more by giving
without expectation or misgivings

Shamed by ill-gotten gains
Peter harangued a self-blame campaign

“Begin with self-forgiveness,

Peter discovered the treasure of giving.
His hollow brick heart brimmed with living!
