Hmm I was reading into the Japenese form of poetry- Haiku. (Follow the link) Interesting! Few of my attempts are below:
From waves near and far
Voices and news I hear
The mobile, the television and the transistor.
Blind as the bat
scurries like the rat
shatters like glass!
Food, water and roof
Vehicle, garden and golf
The green in the pocket buys them all.
Do let me know if you liked them...
