Betrayal



Mother earth draws near, her
Dear children sun and moon, the naughty.
Children,stars are kept away.

Public watch cricketers zealously.
Through betting they , hoard penny  aplenty and
Bedim poor natives’ mind.

Enjoying under  promises
Of secrecy, she forgets ‘self’.
Youth seeks to flirt only.

Koel lays eggs in crow’s
Nest,  crow, poor hatches them with care.
Koels dash away in deceit.

Flower greets beetle earnestly.
Emptying the nectar-storage
He scampers away gaily.

Sarala.

For Haiku heights
