city street crossing

styles blown frizzy – smells of soup

people hug themselves

One thought on “Senryu – city street crossing

  1. I like haiku. I managed to write a few some months ago. They don’t work well to me because they require patience to a degree I don’t have. I have no eyes for haiku, I go past these magical moments, I run over them!

    Thanks for sharing another beautiful piece. =*
