invisible

watercolor

the beggar woman is on the corner again...
invisible to those who walk on
pass by
blush
at the 
one 
coin in her paper cup


the beggar woman is cornered again...
at the crossing 
between inside and out
pretense and heart
smile and smart 

the beggar woman is staring again...
from my mirror
into the me
invisible
to all
but Thee

the beggar woman is walking again:
                                       still
                                             limping
                                                         lightly                         
but
 You did not pass by
 nor blush
at the empty cup
You came
to fill up.
