Poems & Photographs of Homeless

Seeing people eating out of garbage cans and dying on cold concrete streets made me weep.  I watched as people walked by, pretending not to see their Mother, Father, Sister and Brother in each soul crying for help.  I prayed with my heart, soul, mind, body and spirit to die before ever, ever accepting fellow beings eating out of garbage cans and dying from neglect.  I asked to be guided to open hearts through sharing what I see, and Bones of the Homeless was born.
