Temple Bell

(Image Source: http://www.premprasad.org)


the poor kid waited
outside the temple, hungry
for evening bell

evening bell rings
the poor kid in front of queue
eating prasada


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem - A Bell At Sunset.

  9. Life can be very painful. I once saw a toddler and a puppy searching for food in a heap of dump. Can't forget the sight. It makes me hate people who waste food on plate.

  10. If only more people could open their eyes as well as their hearts, maybe then we could all end world hunger.
