Bed

Kuan Yin Temple, Chinatown, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii
 


In the temple court
a tub to house the lotus—
the homeless man weeps,
remembering his own bed
behind the big blue dumpster.

Lotus

in the temple court
a tub to house the lotus—
the homeless man weeps


the mourning dove approaches
a wing wipes his tears away
(Janie Adcock, I Got Nothing)
 
lotus opens
blossom fills
homeless’ bowl
(Cheryl-Lynn Roberts, Tournesol dans du Jardin)
