Writing with Nana Fredu-Agyeman - The Street Beggar - November 18, 2104

winter or summer
sitting under the archways
- she asks for alms

patiently waiting
for a few coins in her bowl -
she kneels on cold stones

(c) G.s.k. '14


Today's post was inspired by Carpe Diem haiku Kai's post featuring the haiku-poet from Ghana, Nana Fredu-Agyeman - for more go HERE.


  1. You did it beautifully. I felt sad reading them.

  2. Beautifully written,cara, we can feel the despair and those cold stones

  3. Your photo and haiku reveals the stark reality...

  4. Kneeling in cold stones has such depth in the emotions.

    1. Thanks Janice .. it's not the most comfortable thing to have to do, that's for sure.

  5. The last one is piercing!

  6. Poor thing -- I felt the pain, fear, desperation, loss, frustration, in kneeling on those cold stones. :(
    Great piece Georgia --


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
