Urban Haiku

This week's topic at One Deep Breath is Urban Haiku.

My memory of my hometown, and the trip home from school:

From town on the bus
Pass jail, asylum, graveyard,
houses in neat rows.

What an orderly view! Thanks for your comment on my planned closure ritual. It makes such good sense, I'm not sure why I didn't think of it sooner. I'm the one who in 1987 threw myself a divorce party and invited all my friends.

I could see those houses in rows as I was reading. This is nice.

Greenish Lady, I love this haiku, wording so clear and resonant that I can "see" the whole scene in my mind's eye and partake of your childhood journey too.

So well put. I loved your Baggage story too. That 'letting go' trick is a powerful thing.

Great piece. Two places that are ok to be, with a bunch that are not ok to be sandwiched in between. :)
