In a world So Cold...

Written for Haiku Heights.. prompt : Cold

In a world so cold
Child of poverty seeks
Warmth in man’s heart


Such coldness in heart
Your words freeze, I wait for Sun
To let kindness melt..


A fun Haiku..too, well here's one;

Jungle celebrates
Everyone sings, donkey doesn't
Suffers from cold..


  1. Both haiku' are good..esp.I like the the second one

  2. Beautiful contrasts in both haikus! The first one is dramatically poignant! The second is dramatically wistful!

  3. Both are great, but the first one truly touches the heart.

  4. You have deviated and handled the prompt differently and on a very serious note!!
    Missed your fun Haiku's today!! But you have done these here excellently!!

  5. oh, that first one cries out for attention RS.. its so true. so many of such children..!

    loved the fun haiku too.. gezundheit to the donkey ;)

  8. well put Ramesh and the message of your haikus are both touching and yeah, funny too!

    wonderful take! i too felt the cold!

  9. men and sun are both helpful,
    what a powerful call.

    lovely Haikus.
