The Kid and the Bald Eagle


                                     flying to the pines
                                     kite pursues a bald eagle...
                                     chests puffed up with pride

A "Special" Harvest

Children so special
Labeled by society --
     Morons, retarded

Each has unique gifts
Wide-eyed, forever smiling
Offer them respect
They have disabilities
But treasures lie in their hearts

Don’t measure life’s worth
By capacity to learn --
     Gauge power to love

For the Harvest of Happiness contest

through brown pipe smoke and fog,

Snooze School

The class was boring.
Some of the kids were snoring.
Well worth ignoring.

The Homeless Child

Street lamps still lighted
night has retired and faded
a new day unfolds

heavens rolled darkness
tucked it away for the sun
to give light and shine

in the horizon
a golden beam of sunrise
appears out of mist

in the street corner
a small child still dazed from sleep
awakens and yawns

trembling, feeling cold
he hugs himself to feel warm
morning air brings chill

to his fragile frame
that looks sickly, frail and weak
under the street lamp

for this homeless child
the street corner becomes home
to rest for the night

in a little while
he will move and will scavenge
for his morning meal

from the garbage can
full of piled litters and trash
he gets his morsel

living in the street
has made him vulnerable
life is hard and tough

for a little child
abandoned, uncared, unloved
is there hope to life?

                                                 a girl runs around
                                                 an oscillating sprinkler — 
                                                 laughing rainbow

Contemporary...indeed! : )
