Here, in this haiku, I try to capture the poignancy and tragedy of the plight and loss of innocence of so many millions of children in other parts of the world who are forced every year to leave their homes and childhoods behind....


Innocence Lost

Forsaken, a girl
roams the Calcuttan “jungle,”—
she weeps in silence.
