Beautiful. Kimmie. Great, easily-actionable advice.
Hi, Norah. Yes, easily actionable. We don't have much to give ourselves, but anything (even a smile) is better than nothing :)
A journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step.
Lovely quote, Liv. I may use it on a future Just-a-Quote post :) Thanks for hopping over. Kimmie.
Hi Kimmie,Having worked with the homeless, the rough sleepers, in Stoke on Trent, helping just one of those remarkable people can make a world of difference in this often indifferent world. Hugs and hope,Gary x
Hi Gary. How lovely. I imagine the work was incredibly rewarding. You've a good heart! Hugs and hope back, my friend. I hope things are as well as can be with you at the mo. Kimmie x
How very true, and not just for the homeless aspect. If you can help just one of anyone in need then that's great. Thank you for sharing.Amanda. #weekendblogshare
Absolutely, anyone in need! Thanks for hopping over Amanda :)
I really like that slogan Kimmie and will use it in rhyme even.
Thanks, Ropey. Use away :)
The Destitute ItinerantSheltered in a doorway roomOpen house to passers byHoping that the wind and rainHas found somewhere else to cryMemories of different daysUnwelcome on these nightsHunger cramps are draining meTurning out my flickering lightsThey call me lost without ambitionJust because I’m down at heelI save and plan my every pennyFor a warm space and a mealLike a ship without a compassIn waters rocky spying landIt all looks so bright invitingBut I dismiss it out of handNo one waits for me I’m homelessShelters anywhere will doI’ll sleep with both eyes searchingUntil morning light shines throughToo many shapes of homelessnessDown and out nowhere to runNo magic wand to help them allCan we just begin with oneCliff Letts
Oh, Cliff. Stunning poetry. Heartbreaking. Heartfelt. So beautiful. Really! Thank you for sharing.
