Traversing the streets with carts piled high
in the neighborhoods of Puget Sound
Evading the notice of passersby
with possessions stacked all around
Reason might say she's a hopeless case,
homeless and out of her mind
Except for those whose luck it has been
to discover this jewel of a find.
Serenely content in her wandering life,
sharply contrasting the madness of today
Evincing the answer to who's more sane,
Terese or society, will be hard to say.
* Terese (pronounced Ta REZ) is a quiet, dignified, wandering homeless lady. My neighbor and I have grown quite fond of her sweet, peaceful manner, reporting "Terese sightings" to each other so we can converse with her and offer her a hot drink or food.
Claiming Hawaii as her true home, Molly Moore is currently residing in Seattle, Washington, pursuing her nursing. Perhaps her previous career as an international flight attendant is what launched Molly’s "flights of fancy" into poetry. A love of rhythm and rhyme sparks her creative side, especially while outdoors in nature.
