    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

    (smoke+ fog) ... lovely haiku and i appreciate your concern for young lungs

    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

    t-hat there is death in the air
    a-t everywhere!

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
