Premium Member CITY HAIKUS

This garden city
Concrete skyscrapers loom;
Greenery punctuate

Tree-lined avenues
Bourgainvillea clusters;
Traffic jam companions

Waltzing slowly
Overhead bridge;
Ant-people below

Heartland community;
Ageing populace

Feeble old lady
Speeds on wheels;
Electric commotion

For small kids and big;
