Clip not the petals

of a young bud before time

the tender heart bleeds.

    Simple, yet profound…

    Yet we do pluck flowers for various reasons and occasions 😦

    Yes indeed Radhika! The first thought that struck me was the tragic Peshawar school attack…

      That was so gruesome…….it is beyond my comprehension how somebody can get so brutal with such innocent souls.

    Touching! Reminds me of the child refugees, innocent victims of abuse and torture, that are a common sight in newspapers and news channels these days,

      Yes, the other day was watching a documentary on children living in the slums of Bombay, such a miserable life they lead…..maybe that is what triggered this Haiku.

      You always encourage me with such positive feedback. Thank you so much Sumith.
      The Peshawar school killings were barbaric and unpardonable. Pray that such gruesome acts never ever happen.
