The Walk for Water in Ethiopia

In the wake of donkeys, we trudge.
The dusty ground, a well worn haunt.
A jarring juxtaposition
of wealth and poverty
revealing nothing but solemn expressions,
parched lips,
and dreams of clean water.

The Walk for Water in Ethiopia

The dusty ground, a well worn haunt.
A jarring juxtaposition
