Poem Spring Blooms

The  early  morning light inspires moods

The birds sing

the spring blooms the flowers

have  fancy names like

Buttercup winter hazel, Christmas-rose

fill city parks

Daffodils and Pink Columbine are also growing in street boxes

A million trees are turning own

Cherry trees blooming street by street

Every year

mothers and father showcase newborns little girls and boys

To all their neighbors

Help us save our program!

I’m reaching out to you because we have started a GoFundMe to save the Bed-Stuy farm and Urban Harvest food pantry. For past 17 years, Brooklyn Rescue Mission has served millions of meals to seniors and hungry families with children.

You have helped us on this hunger relief journey and I would like to ask your support for the Brooklyn Rescue Mission annual fundraiser. If you can help me by sending our friendly request for help thru the GoFundMe platform to a few of your friends, it would be great. Our goal is to obtain 100 donors by January 31, 2018. Please consider helping us reach our goal. Here is a convenient link to our campaign.
