Touching and the pic says it all.

Yeah...we pretend to be oblivious to so many things. Nice.

I have difficult time with breaks in haiku lines since haiku first and third line should be able to be reversed. Just an offering:

what's on the menu?
asked often by ignorant
starving innocents

Hope you will forgive my observation. I do like the message you are conveying very much.

Ahh..the picture speaks a volume..we should remember it when we waste food. People are still there without food like food for days. :(

Wow. Hard hitting and painfully honest. Thanks for writing haiku for social activism. This is a writer's responsibility.

It's good to keep things in perspective, isn't it?

Err...Observation doesn't need forgiveness , I think. I just thought that starving innocents seldom get option to ask "What's on the menu?"
I'm glad you liked the message here...Thanks!:)

Tarang Sinha said...

That's one powerful Haiku tarang, sadly we are quite blind and deaf
to the world around us...

Tarang Sinha said...

Thanks Reshma!:)

That is so true, we waste food which is so bad on our part. I cook twice a day in minimum quantity just to minimize the wastage.

Sri Valli said...

Sad :( I feel why God is so cruel on them?

Tarang Sinha said...

yes, we should try & not waste the food.

Tarang Sinha said...

Yes, it is sad:(
