Santa Monica Pier, California


Mother’s love for child

Ceaseless and repetitive

As lapping sea waves

Homeless in Chicago

Street life

City streets are home

life’s bitter, never better

and passers by kin

Human hunger

Soothing, a joy ride

steaming, a cup of coffee

one’s treat is one’s meal


Greener are grasses

promises of other side

seems reality


Torch of Friendship, Miami

Torch of Friendship, Miami


for the words of humankind

light as a feather
