a beggar feeds
Issue 16.2 | 27 October 2016
We all need to feed, and work, and begging is a long and honourable activity including Zen monks, some of them haikai poets. :-)
From window washers and vendors to asking alms, and often short of what they need:

Well drawn, Dave. Great ku.
I gave a loonie (you need to be Canadian, perhaps, to know what that is…) to a guy at a stop light yesterday. What a light-hearted man – he made me smile much more than the loonie’s worth.

Very lovely Dave. Congratulations
another beggar called himself "a moral traffic light" – perhaps they know each other?
Nice way to highlight the positive out of the negative. Wonderful pivot in the second line as well.
Brought me right back to a street in Mumbai over a decade ago, Dave.
I’m impressed! You’ve managed the almost impbesiols.
