Poor Kids Need Good English Books

& SPANISH, ARABIC, et. al.

Some years ago I found myself in Kosovo

Small Village

Simple People just working Mother Earth

The WEST needed a road

Simple people often get in the way

When the WIND FROM THE WEST blows

some ordinary folks do not know to GET OUT OF THE F***ING WAY! !

two days later I wandered into that small village


A taverna, back of nowhere
strong spirit to ease the soul
a small child with care drawing
pencil slow in motion

Just a moment of nothing
a few moments out of time
to glance at the moving pencil
and the graceful hand that held it

Such care and concentration
whatever could her picture be?
to move the head a little closer
to see what eyes could see

Eyes took in her heart was crying
for a life that would never be
hers’ only toil and birth
and the misery that is Earth

Some they bloom in springtime
the mountain crocus blooms in fall
yet this was the very first time
the eyes took in a flower’s tear

I am still in contact with her father (Mum was shot by UN Forces)

Send her good English study books, story books, simple home made (Salvation Army Folks - only Army I support) dolls...

+ Oxford Dictionary & Thesaurus

With God inside that little female frame, for God is only inside her, she will one day not only shine... but will blind us all with her human understanding, compassion & humility

thanks for reading folks
