August 16th: Thoughts and Mortar

Posted in Guatemala on August 16, 2011

Concrete Pouring

Almost Flooring

Dirty Work

But never boring

Paint the walls

Raise the roof

For Maria

And her youth

Stray dogs roam the streets

Quite used to blistering heat

You see their ribs,

See their bones,

But you can´t give them a home.

Education is a plus

Kids come running without a fuss

Lucky to learn

Lucky to live

Lucky for teachers willing to give

A window opens

Bright, Yellow, Oasis

Turning frowns to happy faces

Nurture hopes, encourage dreams

Opened, Opening, Open Windows
