A cave and the storm;
Mother Earth's invitation
and her vengeful wrath.

illusive and illegal
homelessness survives

My heart aches for my children
Struggling every day

Not within cold walls
But within my friends' warm arms
Do I find my peace


Marjorie Richards

Spoken Here
a porch light left on
gravel crunching an old song
no note to translate

Sometimes home has a heartbeat
But no guarantee.
