Nourishing Bread Line

Standing amid the cold
in the long lines of hunger

It is!
the wind, a blowing 
that chill the bone 
pushing up from the lungs
and passing from the mouth 
to a frosty cold breath 
who awaits, this friendly handout  
for this well needed nourishment  
with hands that are in destination 
reaching for the warmest of soups 

Thank you for your giving!
