His Bites of Roti.. ..Haiku





Prompt: Expectation


Pigeon gently lands
on her kitchen's window sill;
his bites of "roti"


and sometimes:


darkness descends and
she looks at her window sill;
dried bits of "roti " 



Pigeon expects her to offer "Roti" and 
she expects him to come and eat...yet:



Pigeon gently lands,
doesn't find his bites of roti;
window is closed



Another morning;
fluttering of pigeon's wings,
music to her ears



RS:)

"Roti" is a Hindi word for kind of Indian Bread..

  4. When offered free in most instances the appreciation is reduced. It is good sometimes to create a demand. Traders do that. Brilliant observation Ramesh! Happy New Year to you!

  9. A curiosity borne andleft unquenched....to know what happened next....
    Like the piece of dry bread left in our hands when the milk, to go with it, is over.
    Do complete the story and let us peep into this private treat of innocence and party of love.
    Regards
