Saddam Husen

Rookie (10/08/1993 / RASRA)



A nocturnal big tree
Amazing, laden with flowers and buds
Birds sing and play free
Flowers spread scent, day to nights.

We used to swing at bunches
Specially at evening – with friends
We play “Lukka-Chuppi” around its shades
Sometimes we used to sleep in its end.

Its beauty blaze in sun light
And departed buds came as downy flakes
But one day, some rock heart
Without ponder, cut it down and makes—

A big and beautiful house for human live
Where was no joy, sing, play or friendship.
