Slices of Life - I

Back to the routine of a full-time job... the old roads, the buses, the buildings, the people...the morning rush, the evening hustle - life screams from all sides. It requires you to break the shells of safety and comfort that you build around yourself. Then it goes about its way...Life does seem to have its own way, images flip and flap before one makes any true sense of it ~ 

These ‘in the moment’ scribbles/haiku that may connect to the larger plots of the stories one may tell, or may not:

empty bus ~
out of the blue the conductor
hums an old song

summer breeze~
the heady scent of perfume
as they pass

walking alone ~
sharing the loneliness
of the road

~As firmly cemented clam-shells
Fall apart in autumn,
So I must take to the road again,
Farewell, my friends.
~ Matsuo Basho
