cut

why cut the wings off
they are already broken
hearts of the ‘nongin’ *

    With every haiku that you pen, I come to know a little more about Manipur. Never heard of this bird before. It’s so beautiful and sad to know it’s going to be extinct.

    Such a beautiful creature — and so sad that it is in such danger. In the US the bald eagle (national symbol) has been in danger but that’s because of habitat loss and pollution. Thank you for teaching us, Milan. 🙂
