Maria walks #poem #poetry

Maria is a little girl
who walks barefoot
across the desert
coyotes howl under the moon
Maria walks
her heart is small
her dreams are big
a cactus waves at her
and blooms
one day Maria will grow up
and she will buy herself
some shoes

  1. Good morning. Very sad the plight of Maria and so many others like her.
    Gracious of you to take the time out to remind us that in a world of plenty, there
    are people (and innocent children) in need.

  2. Nostalgia! Evoked strong memories. Reminded me of my child labour years and when I finally got NCC shoes in 9th std. And was punished to walk barefoot again! For 10 km. Such is life! Great poetry. Loved it. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»
