‘The Wasp and the Honeybee’

For this tiny honeycomb,

you are boasting so much!

My dear brother, come hither,

show me a better one before I leave.

‘Dwelling Place’

Announced the mango tree to the creeping tree,one day,

We were all equal in this green forest;

man has brought with him his own taste__

now the distinction has begun, equality comes to an end.

‘Necessity of Relationship’

Money

Beggar’s bundle remarked ¬†hey money bag,

how can you forget we are related?

Money bag uttered, you would have done the same

if the money was in your bundle and not in mine.
