A Poem by Neville Pettitt



Peaches ripen then

They rot and fall food for worms

Elsewhere children starve

Poignant, perfectly metered,sad Senryu about the waste of resources in some parts of the world in the hollow face of starvation in other parts of the world. Such an atrocity. Eloquent and powerful poem Neville. Well-done.

Yes, so very sad but oh' so regrettably true.Many thank you's Annette
Very sad and so beautifully written. If only we just opened all our gardens to those children...your pen drips such love and compassion here.
