Roadside beggar

                                                                        A wayside beggar
                                                                pain and misery his companion
                                                                         help him a lot.







                                                                       Don't be smart,
                                                                 you can see, you can walk
                                                                        pretend for a living.





                                                                         Suffering soul,
                                                                 open sky his only shelter
                                                                          chilly winds .

  1. So sad to have no where to go for shelter from the storm! Lovely!

  2. I especially like the second haiku because I'm not entirely sure what it's saying, even though the words aren't at all obscure. And I tend to quite enjoy not knowing :)

    1. Thank you Sue. It is about a person pretending to be a beggar.

  3. Brilliant Usha! Though they're all great, I especially love the first, "..pain and misery his companion..." - well said! :) <3

  4. It's so touching, Usha Ma'am. The battle of lesser mortals:)
