A Sign

Written for:  Carpe Diem #920 Hunger (Empathy)
Your haiku today does not need to be about the sense of hunger, but it should show empathy, which is another way of being at one with your topic or theme.

In a downpour
she holds a cardboard sign
letters fading
as we roll down the window,
Pregnant and Hungry. Please Help.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
