The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 26 – Food For Thought

Feb 26

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

Beware, innocent 
child. The world is a mirage
  You are food for thought


Perfectly laid out
Platter to deceive taste-buds
Are you the main course?
