Poverty’s Child


helenvalentina

Stark brutality
A lash tells many
many stories
Bruises form beneath
hidden, innocent skin

Poverty’s child
Wide eyes hopeful
Pitiful question
There’s no alibi
given in this moment

Wondering glance
A passing interest
is just passing
Never sees the darkness
in this fractured world

Passerby smiles
come far too cheaply
No clemency
or true sanctuary
is ever offered here

Migrant workers in southern California, USA


Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA says about itself:

“We have nothing” – The plight of migrant workers in Southern California

27 mei 2014

The impoverished California towns of El Centro, Brawley, and Calexico are home to thousands of agricultural laborers–including a countless number of undocumented immigrants. Many Mexican workers make the commute across the international border on a daily basis, leaving hours before the sun rises. In this video, workers and residents speak about social conditions in the area.

Flowers in Black and White


Colline's Blog

I enjoy the colours of the flowers in spring: yellow, red, pink, violet. The colours are a balm to a spirit that longed for colour during the long, icy winter. There are times, however, when the details of the flowers really stand out in black & white.

The lack of colour seems to bring out the shades in the geraniums and the detail of its centre. When blossoms are seen without colour, their beauty seems to be highlighted in contrast to the darkness of the leaves.

The photos are effective and pleasant to look at. I do prefer, however, seeing the colour when I walk about outside. Colour that tells me that spring has arrived and old man winter has left for southern plains.

Do you enjoy seeing flowers in black & white?

The Thrill of Mt. Everest
Located in Xizang-Tibet which is in the Autonomous region of china, Mt. Everest is Himalaya’s highest peak standing at 8848 meters above sea level and looks like a huge pyramid full of grandeur and power. The environment is quite complicated and it has an extremely dangerous topography. Its cloud posture is multifarious and is regarded as “the supreme vane in the world”.

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.

Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin — find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that it was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

When I am writing, I am trying to find out who I am, who we are, what we’re capable of, how…

Work In Unity To Heal Mother Earth.


THE ONENESS of HUMANITY

COUNCIL STATEMENT

This statement reflects the wisdom of the Spiritual People of the Earth, of North and South America, working in unity to restore peace, harmony and balance for our collective future and for all living beings. This statement is written in black and white with a foreign language that is not our own and does not convey the full depth of our concerns.

The Creator created the People of the Earth into the Land at the beginning of Creation and gave us a way of life. This way of life has been passed down generation-to-generation since the beginning. We have not honored this way of life through our own actions and we must live these original instructions in order to restore universal balance and harmony. We are a part of Creation; thus, if we break the Laws of Creation, we destroy ourselves.

We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, have no choice…
