Haiku. A City (5-7-5)

I see the busy streets
Strewn with scraps of human souls
Floating indolent

    Littered with human souls! The city here is the microcosm of the entire planet that is littered with life in its infinity............

    A real description of life in the cities where every one goes out on the streets, sometimes without any purpose and they litter on streets like garbage causing many problems. But who can remove this scrap from the roads? The situation in rural areas is still different, they too go out but sit below a tall and dense tree and remain engaged in different discussions right from politics to interesting scandals.

    I see an indictment sort of imagery in this meaningful haiku and I somewhat tend to agree.
