BARDS AGAINST HUNGER

The Bards Against Hunger 5th Year Anniversary Book is now available through Amazon or the Bards Against Hunger organization.  The project has raised thousands of pounds of food over the last 5 years to help local charities and food shelters in many different states. You may help support them by buying a book or organizing an event in your state or country.

I am honored to have one of my poems included!  It is a true memoir written as a member of the working poor, who also go hungry, especially when money is needed for emergency situations.  One of our fellow-WordPress poets, Denise Fletcher, also has a poem included.  Check out her blog, especially what she calls “Mood Boards”:

PROGRESS 59 SUPPLY CRAFT TANKA

Disintegration

Over the oceans is still

The likely outcome

As the Progress fifty-nine

Hurtles to Earth parts unknown

Six thousand pounds of

Food could feed our hungriest

Nations and the fuel

Could warm shivering bodies

Run if you see fiery streaks!
