Wretched little kid
Starts to play in dirty mud
And stares at the stars
Copyright © 2011 Marinela Reka
This is WONDERFUL… the contrast of small, dirty mud and playing with the environment/circumstance he has, against the high, clean stars – bright with hope and possibility – and believing… dreaming of something better, though not knowing what better is… all that and more is contained in 14 words on three simple lines. Masterful!
Glad to see you write lovely haiku.

I agree that your haiku shows such a lovely contrast between the dirty world he inhabits and the starry world up above. Beautiful haiku.
I wonder what he sees in those stars…. this is lovely!
Hi there..ya, I enjoy haiku and don’t do this often enough..your contrast was inspirational and I enjoyed the tribute to your mom!
