Donkey and a piece of paper

A group of donkeys
Grazing on grass
Found a piece of paper


Curious they were
To see just one piece
For the entire group


They fled from grass
And tasted the paper
One after another


Only few got to taste
Rest heads down disappointed
Got back to grass


From then everyday a paper is found
Excited they run
Feed upon with dissatisfaction


That paper which tasted the first
Was the tastiest one
And nothing could match it


The donkey
Which first tasted the paper
Never existed
But yet remembered forever!!

ನನ್ನ ಕನಸು

ಪಕ್ಕದಲ್ಲೇ ನನ್ನ ಕನಸಿಗೆ ನಿದ್ದೆ ಹೊದಿಸಿ ನಾ ಎಚ್ಚರಗೊಂಡಿರುತ್ತೇನೆ ತೂಗು ತೂಕಡಿಕೆಯಲಿ, ನಡು ರಾತ್ರಿ ಮಂಪರಲಿ ... ಪೂರ್ತಿ ಮೈ ಮರೆಯದೆ, ಗೊರಕೆ ಹೊಡೆಯದೆ ಕೈ-ಕಾ...
