Limitation

Words have little effect on a hungry child

You can not write chocolate on a piece of paper

And expect to fill his stomach

A thousand words can not replace a single hug

Days and nights of sleep do not equal 5 minutes in your lap

So many poems wither and wilt , for that one kiss  beyond  printed words

Man made  language .

To preserve memory.

It is past …

How to live in this present- tense ?

  1. Words have little effect on a hungry child – what an amazing start! You held my attention from the moment those words spilled out of your pen/keyboard and till the very last word!
    Strong, compassionate and powerful is what your poem is!
