Silver streaks at dawn
On sacred Yamuna, crammed
With polythene bags.


Yamuna- a sacred river of India

    I see the same phenomenon in Pakistan.This is happening to all rivers
    and streams passing through the cities. They are crammed with garbage
    and polythene bags and water seems like sludge. There is a moan, a groan
    behind the silent beauty of this haiku........10/10.
