What if poets could make a difference to prevent and eliminate world hunger? Poetry X Hunger is one such organization with the goal to prevent and eliminate this social issue https://www.poetryxhunger.com/. Some poets inform from first hand experience with hunger. Others write as an observer. Yet other poets dream of solutions. Let’s explore world hunger poetry!
Here is my poem.
When the Hungry Sleep The hungry rest on tufts of pea green grass beneath a sunset sky of cherry red; evolves to berry blue as time does pass. A mashed potato moon lights nature's bed. Some meteors streak silver through the night, appear as schools of fish in unison. The hungry gaze in awe for one last bite: Could you, could I provide much more than one? Let's donate to some food banks, stop food waste, grow healthy food on Mother Earth to eat, Imagine plenty - food for all to taste from nature's palette plenty - what a feat! The trees would clap when all are satisfied. Please help us spread our message far & wide! Linda M. Wolfe, First Rights to Poetry X Hunger 2021
