"BONES OF THE HOMELESS"

              Book of Poems & Photographs
                          
by Judy Jones

     

The Bones of the Homeless book with my photographs
and words are simply my small part in joining hearts
and hands with all peoples helping make homelessness, history.
I am a freelance photojournalist and have chosen
to spend my life shedding light on the plight of
the poor dying in increasing numbers all over the earth.
It is dedicated to Mother Teresa, Terry Messman
and Meria Heller.







The Bones of the Homeless
   by Judy Joy Jones

Seeing People eating out of garbage cans and
dying on cold concrete streets made me weep.
I watched as people walked by, pretending
not to see their Mother, Father, Sister and Brother
in each soul crying for help.  I prayed with my
heart, spirit,  mind and body  to die before
ever, ever accepting felllow beings eating
out of garbage cans and dying from neglect.
I wanted to open hearts through
sharing what I see, and Bones of the
Homeless was born..............Judy Jones

Many times, I have published a Judy Jones poem
on the front page of Street Spirit as a testimony
that her poems help reveal the realities of homelessness
at a depth surpassing many of our news articles
on the same subject.

The eloquence of Judy's poetry and firey
intensity of her lyrical and emotional outcry
for kindness and justice have moved thousands of readers.

Her book can help uplift our vision so we may truly
see the humanity and sacred souls of those our
society has condemned, neglected and cast
into the oblivion of poverty."

'Bones of the Homeless" is among the most
powerful poems heard at my eclectic Berkeley
Whole Note Series.  When Judy performed
'Ode to Janis Joplin', it brought the veteran
poets to their knees.  Judy is inspired by
spiritual beliefs that defy the usual
church syndromes."

How long we have needed this voice, crying
in the wilderness!  How deeply the distinctly
meaningful prose etches its way into one's
heart.  Have we forgotten?  No!  Nevermore.
For now we can remember the words of the
poet Judy Jones, in her magnificent book;
BONES OF THE HOMELESS, how it FEELS
to live and die in the despair of
homelessness. 

                                


Cynthia Bage

These poems challenge conventional sterotypes
concerning the homeless, and believe me,
these sterotypes seriously require challenging
in our self-centered culture of intolerance
against the poor and disenfranchised.
