Urban Haiku

lighting up
a beggar smiles
at himself

keeping it slow . . .
another car leaves
my mirror

back alley
an old train track
to nowhere

cars honking
from all directions –
one-way wrong-way!

mounted police
the clopping hooves
on 6th st

one string …
a street man plays
for money

Haiku based on Los Angeles, Burbank and Santa Monica, California.  Each one is truth.  The image is written as closely to the actual event as possible.  Read them and see how they relate to things you’ve seen or experienced.

*all published on the World Kigo Database under Urban Haiku.

    I think this is my favorite so far! So very visual. I can see and hear the streets of LA.

    I love to visit this site in the middle of my work day. Your haiku are so entertaining that I forget the stresses of work. Thank you!
