wings reaching...

Jacek Yerka - Erosion 

invade lives
lost desert wastelands
souls eroded by hunger
bodies craving for loving
an urban dreamscape
or nightmare

reaching high
face smiling with light
a child with dreams from Sweden
a saint working in Zinder
a friend to many
ascends to

The Joseph’s Star was created by Christina R. Jussaume.
It is a non-rhyming 8-line poem with a syllable count of 1/3/5/7/7/5/3/1.
Each stanza is centre-aligned so that the finished poem is diamond-shaped.

This poem is dedicated to Esther Garvi who died recently in Zinder.
Details of her life and work are HERE
my other thoughts on her life are HERE and HERE
