    Staring at the bus
    weary passengers embark
    towards open road

    Staring at the bus
    Bon Voyage, young traveller
    Wishing I was you.

    Staring at the bus
    I yawn and see if it came
    But no it had not.

    staring at the bus
    broken down along the road
    passengers waiting

    Cool

    Towards open road
    I walk with impatient steps;
    I hope the bus comes.



    From an earlier post:

    "Now changing the first line in the thread every fifth post...don't forget, thanks."

    towards open road
    rebels stealthily await
    to ambush target

    Cool

    Towards open road
    I go, with heightened senses
    and fatigued footsteps
    .

    towards open road
    moonlight casts lonely shadows
    grasses blown by wind

    Cool

    Towards open road,
    I suddenly hear something;
    it makes me shiver.



    This is the fifth post beginning with "Towards open road."
    I believe the next five posts should begin with "It makes me shiver."

    Grasses blown by wind
    Were once the smallest of seeds
    Out of the winds reach

    Cool

    Grasses blown by wind
    flowing at high speed with strength,
    power, and passion.



    Thank you for your thoughts, Bluemauvey, Old Bean.


    Sincerely,

    Uncle Lar

    Grasses blown by wind
    past the smoothly plastered walls
    in clear morning air

    (hope i did it right, it's my first ever haiku. and YES, plastered is only 2 syllables)

    Grasses blown by wind
    the slope and leaning bend,
    circular bandstand.
    and somehow a dog
    has taken itself & its tail considerably away
    into the mountains or sea or sky, leaving
    behind: me, wag.

    Quite right

    In clear morning air
    stars demure to rising sun
    songbirds chirp, "Arise!"
