Ills: A Haiku

Industrial ills,
Steel scraps spill, charred chimneys chill,
And, yet, trees still thrill.


Photo taken in Camden, NJ

Fun fact: The power plant in the background is actually on the other side of the Delaware River in Philadelphia, perhaps close to a mile away as the crow flies. From this angle, it looms large and doesn’t seem so far.
