Spanish is very similar to Latin (from which it is derived) and Italian consequently Spanish Haikus also have an excellent 'voice' due to the vowel endings. Again I included some literal translations into English.

The centre of praise - for his discoveries and conquest of space
The centre of blame - for pollution and global warming.
