Poem 255 - Watery Visions

Image link here

Happily she dreamed
Nestled in her mother's lap
Last time probably

How was she to know?
That she would be abandoned
By her poor parents

Poor little baby
Her dreams would be shattered; like
the snap of a twig

She starts crying as,
Her mother leaves her; on the
doorstep of a house

Watery visions
As she cries her heart out
Save the girl child please
~Gaurang Rao


  1. It happens...
    Nice set of Haiku!

  2. Oh, I'm feeling the pain of these. I want to give Haiku as verses a try. Great job.

  3. Thanks Sabra Bowers!! Do give it a try please!

  4. Such a sad story!

  5. Sad and very powerful! I really liked it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. What a terrible and heartbreaking decision for parents to leave a child to its fate with others rather than poverty and misery with them. Yet it still goes on.

  7. Your concern is genuine and this is coming straight from your heart!! Great message at the end!!

  8. I know...poverty the cause of trouble!

    This is too sad, and more so because it does happen. Well done.
