      Ravi...
      I'm glad these pieces are a bit thought provoking.

      It's hard watching a child who is hungry...but even more do watching thise who refuse her food

      Thanks  again John.

      Hunger can come in many forms.

      I hope I described these ones.

      In life...
      We all are hungry for different things.

      Hunger is huge.

    I love the emotion in your first poem, which of course makes us think of Ron. Each poem was good, and I enjoyed reading them, Brenda.

    Thanks for posting Brenda's poems, Ravi.

      Thanks Pamela.
      At least no one can ever take away those moments we share with our loved ones.
      I love the fact the moments only happen once.

      I'm glad you enjoyed reading them all.

    A good collection of poems on Hunger, Brenda. Like Pamela, I loved the first poem the best. It's true the hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread (Mother Teresa's quote.) It is also true the hungry feeling together with the lonely feeling is even much worse to absorb. I hope you are seizing each day as much as you can and taking it one day at a time. Wishing you all the very best. Blessings too.

    Thank you, Ravi, for the share.

      Rosina,
      No doubt it's a hunger that I wish no one else to feel, but sadly we will all long for loved ones who are no longer with us.

      I'm getting stronger each day & I try to enjoy life.

      Each moment is new & different.   A new chapter in life.

      Thanks for reading & appreciating my words.

    Hello Brenda!
    What a beautiful and soulful response to the word prompt, hunger!
    Hunger of the stomach can be satisfied, but what about the heart, and the soul? Very well expressed poems to bring out this meaning of hunger.
    I enjoyed reading all your wonderful poems.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Thank you Raviji, for sharing Brenda’s response in the forum.

      Thank you so much!

      The hunger of the heart & soul are a bit harder to satisfy...but I suppose that's why God gave us memories.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the way my words expressed this type of hunger.

      Take care

      Thanks Misbah.

      I've got that tendency to write from the heart, no matter the subject.

      Take care
