A woman's description of what she sees in London.



 

In England, rain never slows this time of year.
Sun is always parading across
Europe
,
whether, dining on the floors of
Italy

or lounging over the concretes of
Spain
.
Settling anywhere except on these wet shores
where light is no longer a trend, but a rare memory.  Either way, I am standing on a
Manchester
bridge feeding birds with crumbs of desperation, giving them portions of my worries.
What they don't eat is packed away and stored 


like lunch meat in the marrow of my bones, waiting for time and circumstance to unearth them.

As I look across town and pity her,
I see a mirthless woman prowling these English roads.  She is thin-faced, a scarce reminder
of how life can betray even the well-intentioned. 


I watch as she earns her living
scrounging for the loose change that strangers
dig from their pockets.  I wondered did her dreams


also died in the rain?  Were they destroyed by year’s imperfect hands?




On days like today, I await the promise of morning.

Will she bloom in her wake? 



Or will this constellation of clouds be too much for her to overtake?

Nadia:

What a thoughtful write! I often wondered about the same thing when I passed by these people. I tried to give them $2.00, at least.

I often thought that once they were innocent babies in their mother's arms, and being admired by everyone. How life have betrayed them!...and robbed them of their happiness and dignities!!!

A wonderful thoughtful write, Nadia!

P.S. I have not been around here much now, since my mother passed away in December of last year. Still missing her a lot and feeling lost. I'm going through a very stressful time right now.
