Lizard : Gecko




  Lizard,cockroach,rat

  1. Loved your haiku, Ushajee.

    All are annoying yet play an essential role.

  5. Excellent..I have heard the shrieking sounds... and trafic jams have taught me patience...when one can't do a thing, one observes and pick up moments to create haiku..without boundaries...

    Good take by you Ushaji..thanks..
