Memorial Fund

Click give,
adding your meager dollars
to the relief effort
for the musician’s wife & children,
lamenting your own destitution,
wondering how much,
if any,
difference you could possibly make,
remembering that tributaries
flow into mighty rivers,
closing your eyes,
sailing a fervent wish across miles,
praying folks would do the same
if it were you.

#13 of 30 Poems In November to benefit Center for New Americans.
& For the Love of Charlie Chesterman Fund is HERE.
