at street corners
vaguely they stare
a path away from
home leads nowhere
people give them a few
coins is all they will share
mother and child caught
in a snare a unique pair
reliving a nightmare
muslim society has
created beggars
a pain they bare
misplaced charity
like fish out of water
gasping for air

her pain
her sufferings
held on her
wrinkled brow
a very long

rows and rows
lines of
on her face
time has
is enough
she tells
her fate
she wont
be cowed
the eatery
was a board

Beggar Poets Are Born Not Made

on the sands of time
when the waves come
will soon fade dangerously
walking barefeet on the edge
of a blade deleted doomed
destiny i could not trade spectral
light elusively seeking shade
naked angst unclothed emotions
on lifes ramp on parade .
death waits for me on the other
side of the shoreline i wade
my debts unpaid ...frightfully
seeking refuge the mind
willing the disembodied
spirit afraid ..oh my god
once just once for a
nano second come
to my aid ..i cross
the line of sanity
opening the doors
you forbade ...a foot
in purgatory the other
in Hades ...a poet
beguiled betrayed

dedicated to bernie shadowboxer


A taverna, back of nowhere
strong spirit to ease the soul
a small child with care drawing
pencil slow in motion

Just a moment of nothing
a few moments out of time
to glance at the moving pencil
and the graceful hand that held it

Such care and concentration
whatever could her picture be?
to move the head a little closer
to see what eyes could see

Eyes took in her heart was crying
for a life that would never be
hers’ only toil and birth
and the misery that is Earth

Some they bloom in springtime
the mountain crocus blooms in fall
yet this was the very first time
the eyes took in a flower’s tea
