Haikus for the innocent daughter of Mother India

She was named light

we named her fearless

our country’s daughter.

 

Stars descend

the lovers aren’t alone

slow death engulfs the night.

 

Shrill cries of

resistance and denial

silent night is deaf.

 

She fights

but he won’t take no

as answer.

 

Christmas carols o’er there

silent cries o’er here

broken by iron.
