This week's prompt at One Deep Breath was Urban Haiku. I'm not a huge fan of big cities, and as a matter of fact, the older I get the more I wish I could live in a place like Mayberry! I admit there is an excitement about the idea of living and working in a cosmopolitan city like New York or San Franciso, or Paris. Somehow, Detroit (which is my nearest big city) just doesn't have the same appeal. At any rate, here are some haiku based on impressions of urban life.
street corner cafe favorite brew and the Times my morning pleasure
bumper to bumper impatient engines grumble freeway gridlock
skyscrapers spread like wildfire from cities to my backyard urban sprawl
