“THIS IS HUNGER, THIS IS PAIN”      

I had to share the following micro poem and photograph with all my readers. The poem is exquisite in its brevity. But the photograph, this photograph …. what can I say. As a woman, a mother, a human, its naked poignancy has gripped me.

“This is hunger                                                                                                                                                   This is pain                                                                                                                                                       Let the world of plenty                                                                                                                                Bow its head in shame”

  1. So heartbreaking but so beautifully described in the micro poem, and your thoughts so well expressed, Linda – I wholeheartedly agree with them.

    1. It is a powerful photo, isn’t it? So powerful I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind, so I awoke, sat at my computer and wrote a follow-up today, ‘On Death and Dying’.
