empty soul lost hope
days pass in endless longing
poor is not a crime

Your poem is poignant.

in a doorway, I sleep
the ground is hard
my life

dreams chase bitter streets
once was loved in measure full
drained out long ago

p- it's a sad fact that a lot of people go hungry and then you have the others who overindulge, not to mention waste!

Susan - I always enjoy your insightful comments. May the New Year bring you much joy and prosperity!

Mauricio - Welcome! Glad you like it :) My best to you, too.

You know, I read all your posts, it is difficult for me to comment all of them because my English is not so good
Though I find it's a good idea to do such a blog: only one picture and a few words underneath
