Magpie Tales #276 Alone

Midsummer Night's Melancholy by Michael Sowa
 
Alone they wait
Patiently, hungrily and lonely
Neglected

Sadly beautiful - and your second image, gosh, I see so many homeless people with dogs. They are so loyal to each other.

So sad.. but still good when the animals and people meet

Love the commentary on isolation and the need for companionship.

Physical hunger is bad, soul hunger is worse. Very poignant.

Yes, waiting for his master!

The very thought of hungry, abused humans and animals makes me sad and angry and feeling helpless to fix it. Can only hope my bit of assistance is replicated by thousands and thousands of others.

Paula Wooters said...

Ah... they're not the only hungry ones!

Exactly how I felt about it - but I spent a few more words saying so.....(as usual)!
