Pariah



souls of misery
lay abandoned in ruined scars
no temple to pray

no temple to pray
are the Gods not listening
cries of sorry fate


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights - Pariah.

  11. Those souls not accepted in regular spiritual places - I wonder who really has the right to deem them outcasts! Thoughtful haiku!

  12. Well done. Those within the temple make the rules, but I wonder if God listens to them :)

    Too often one feels that way. What's surprising is how many things we can associate this misery to.
