For Day 26, the haiku challenge prompt is “Paint any one of the images” out of two images. Never one to leave out something, intentionally, at least, I will attempt to write for both. Here are the photos. They make me very sad. I cannot bear to see children suffer and especially if they go hungry. I try and do my bit to contribute regularly to the orphanages I know and hope to do a lot more in my lifetime.
Here are the two pictures. I’ll write the haiku when I am done crying.
Food for Thought I
Buds fed up with life
will they bloom? Is adulthood,
health a fantasy?
Is the staircase their
future? If they get up where
will they go? The streets?
Food for Thought II
child. The world is a mirage
You are food for thought
Perfectly laid out
Platter to deceive taste-buds
Are you the main course?
