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

As he cast his line
through brown pipe smoke and fog,
Again, he sits and waits.

Rainbow

                                                 a girl runs around
                                                 an oscillating sprinkler — 
                                                 laughing rainbow






Contemporary...indeed! : )

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?

God's Discipline

God's criticism towards our life 
Is like a father-&-son relationship
-- he disciplines us well with peace

The Photographer

Skies gray and rains blow;
Trees sway and creak like old stairs.
Thunder rolls and booms.

The den lights go out.
On the brown faux leather couch
Kids crowd together.

Whites of their eyes show.
"Shush! God is doing his work,"
Grandparents tell them.

Lightning bolt flashes,
Illuminates the front yard
And freezes the scene

Framed by porch windows;
He snaps candids from the storm,
Outside looking in.
