Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

I Found Them Together

i found them together
clinging like autumn leaves
to a dead tree…
there…on the streets
feeling cold penetrating
like a wound…
i took food
gave my gloves for his
ice cold hands…
again awareness of
all walking by
on the other side…
while they like many
exist cold and alone…

    Perhaps, it’s your kernel of goodness that matters here, George …
    not so much what others do or do not do.
    This is truly beautiful and compassionate work – your writing and deeds.

  • Thankyou Melody, its good to hear from you again

    the perils of life, and the everyday indifference by the shuffling of crowds going hither and thither…

    great poetry as always George
