Kids wheeze and city coughs-
Mind full of smog

    Pollution's effect on nostrils and lungs is apparent but it's effect on human mind is occult and very harmful and so on heart as well...! (Report) Reply

    SMOG is an engineering term which we use frequently in Automobile Engg.
    (smoke+ fog) ... lovely haiku and i appreciate your concern for young lungs
    and nature.

    oil is the blood of earth and
    we have already punctured
    her heart!
    her lungs: the amazon forest is
    almost felled down...
    gone...sure nature will fight back
    with epidemics, natural calamities..

    M-ainly though provoking
    a profound observation
    m-any did not mind
    t-hat there is death in the air
    a-t everywhere!
