ILLUSTRATED POEMS

We stood here, side by side,
Moon's light lacing shadows
On my white gown
And his black tux.
We pledged our troth
Til death do us part.

And then Iraq -

Now his light shines down on me,
As I wander in my memories.

Homeless, they stand disclosed;
Hungry, they stand so skeletal;
Shivering, they pocket their hands;
Depressed, they wait through endless days.
Who will give them hope?

"Depression Bread Line" by George Segal
at The Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ, GA, USA.

The financial axe hovers
Threatening to descend,
On once bright hopes
And release despair.
