In search of the elusive coffee shop early on a Christmas morn!

the streets
are dark
maybe even dank,
a little rain,
possibly climate change,
who knows?
maybe god!
bless you Kyoto?
so alone
except for me
and a few others
who are out and about,
of course the homeless
are standing under
the awning
of the peace on earth
across from the
mother mary church of divinty
patron saint of those that give shelter,
all im looking for
is a coffee,
im sure most of the others
out and about
on the birthday of jesus
are seeking god,
except for the homeless
im positive,
the eternal optimist,
they are just seeking shelter,
will maybe not the guy
sleeping under the blue tarp,
held up by a shopping cart
and a discarded bike,
me thinks he’s dead,
but the rest are still searching,
maybe they will
find there own tarp someday,
looks like rain,
extra large regular please?

    A real glimpse at the ‘other side’ of Christmas for so many…
    Poem wise, I love how you have tied the desire for that early morning cuppa in with a message.
    This is the bomb, Rocky.
    Best wishes to you
    Sandra x

  • thank you sandra…
