PLAIN WORDS

Window ledge song Stray sparrows sing; A choral duo ~~~~~~~~~ Rain drops slide Blurry window view; Furious stormy night ~~~~~~~~~ Not much to say Old couple sit; Passing people punctuate ~~~~~~~~~ Coffee maker sounds Morning makeovers; Caffeine fix retort ~~~~~~~~~ From this penthouse Brief promontory; Puzzling landscapes ~~~~~~~~~ Lovely couple Youth presides; Time will tell ~~~~~~~~~ Haiku moment Zero metaphor; Captured picture ~~~~~~~~~ Plain words Tell not describe; Look and see ~~~~~~~~~ Curious pantomime Merge into a dream; Fall into another ~~~~~~~~~ Joy waits Sorrow appears; Opposites reconcile ~~~~~~~~~ Eastern view Western education; Two worlds endow ~~~~~~~~~ Awakening Awareness Abundance ~~~~~~~~~ Bus stop queue Gadgets in hand; Electronic toys ~~~~~~~~~ Social media Conspiracy theories; Insidious intents ~~~~~~~~~ Girl and boy Two whirls collide; Fancy intervenes ~~~~~~~~~ Years have etched Facial sculptures; Deep wrinkles attest ~~~~~~~~~ Cite and recite Write and re-write; Nothing much ~~~~~~~~~ Opposites attract To balance out; Not much more ~~~~~~~~~ Curious wonder Time runs away; Not much left ~~~~~~~~~ Like attracts like To boost buzz; Ample estates ~~~~~~~~~ Leon Enriquez 10 May 2015 Singapore
