{Sevenling: On the corner}


On the corner there’s a man
with a guitar, a dog
and an empty cup.

Her eyes don’t know which
to see first: strings,
collar, coin.

The streetlamp crow knows what to do, but he’s not talking.



Another Sevenling for dVerse. Linkin’ it up later…

    This really made me chuckle! Love it.
    Anna :o]

  2. I find it so hard to face a beggar… and I just hope I could get the crow to tell.

  3. Love this! So, you know, if you write just one more poem today you’ll have written 7 for the 7th. Crazy! I thought I was doing good to get one written, and although I’m tempted to write another for the dVerse prompt, I’m going to save it for tomorrow because it’s closer than you think.

    Wow…that crow seems to show up everywhere and always he doesn’t tell a thing or he blabs everything he does know. I am a sucker for beggars with dogs…

    My favourite of yours today.

    I specially love the second part: strings,
    collar, coin.

    An excellent visual De, as I can imagine it ~

    “Her eyes don’t know what to see first…” great line there, De. And that crow, what a great touch!

  9. Mary says:

    De, this is very poignant. It saddens me, but it is an all too common sight.

    For some, it’s never easy to survive a day. It’s tough but we keep going anyway. He has lots of good music to play I hope the people will realize soon. I like this, too! 🙂

  13. Not all guys with guitars, dogs and empty cups are beggars. I read a wonderful autobiography by Laurie Lee called ‘As I Stepped Out One Morning’. He played his violin for money while he travelled though Spain. Beautifully told.

  14. The scene, the emotions, all of it, in so few lines!

    Love that concluding line about the crow.
