She hobbles over cobbles,
oblivious to the flash
of gold-finches
in the branches
of dusty urban trees.
They tinkle as they gather
round dandelion puffs
to eat seeds, collect fluff
for their cobbled-together
nests, while she’s still looking
for a night-time place to rest.

    1. Thank you, Toni. Some of hose hobbling homeless women aren’t even that old, it’s the conditions they live in that age them. It’s truly sad (and disgraceful) that governments are not doing enough to give people homes but they are quite happy to take from everyone.
