Poor blessed with slack
and Rich with surplus, Wish there's

Poor suffers from the
starvation, And rich from greed,
God!! heal both of them

Dry and parched land waits
to absorb each raindrop but,
the rain.... falls on ocean!

Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 18 – February 18th – Theme or word: Famine

Asni said...

Isn't it ironic - the rain falls in the ocean instead of the land where it's needed most? Nice set of haiku!

Sometimes it seems as though there is no justice in this world, no balancing of the scales.

A Famine of Ink

We seem to have the same thoughts on this one. There is an imbalance. Such a shame.

"Dry and parched land waits to absorb each raindrop, but the rain falls on the ocean." - Wow!
