Traffic #midnighthaiku #writespiration


Minds like motorways

Choked by persistent traffic

Always under stress


Senses bombarded

Thoughts jostle for position

Seeking precedence


Illusory goals

The destination unknown

Eroding being


Life is the fuel

Squandered on frantic motion

Too far and too fast


The rose does not think

Held lightly in silent earth

She shows us beauty


perfect rose
