Santa, Send 3 Special Gifts to My African Friend

You work miracles My brother said that you can Three gifts for my friend He lives in faraway land There isn’t much time to spare Tim is so tiny His stomach round and swollen Thirsty, starving, bones Can you hear his stomach growl All the way from the North Pole? Medicine, water Shoes for his weary thin feet Santa replied with A teardrop shaped ornament… For all of humanity Written for Santa’s Surprise Contest In honor of Linda-Marie the Sweetheart of Poetry Soup Gwendolen Rix 12-15-11

Love You

total enchantment
the time I shared here with you
long past the times, few
 
sometimes I feel the cancer  
is in us both not just you

cancer

you prey on bodies
causing them to bow on knee
i ask for God's grace

while family watch me die
not resting till your job's done


Details | Tanka |

no mercy

you eat at my soul
causing pain to family
tearing me apart

you show no mercy on me
yet you don't quit till your done
