Empty

Mercado
Mercado San Juan, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 


Looking for a basket,
I found one just for me,
A little white and blue one
As pretty as could be.
But when I went to buy it,
Someone called my name,
So I left the marketplace
As empty as I came.

Strands

Razor wire
A forbidding fence, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 


Slicing through the blue,
strands of concertina wire
keep all thieves at bay.

Keeper of the Door

Virgin of the Household
Virgin guarding a doorway, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Psalm 84:10, King James Version
 


Keeper of the door,
never sleeping day or night,
bless all those within.

Sometimes Paradise

Missing child
“Her name is Yamilet. She wears a blue sweater and sandals, and is four years old.”
Morelia, Michoacán, México


Sometimes paradise
is a poster with a plea
for a child’s return…
