Street sounds


fire engine blaring
along crowded narrow street
alas, false alarm

~0~0~

clock chimes
tall buildings in a row sighed
as feet rushed outside


~0~0~


national game day
horns and whistles blowing loud
street full of colours

  5. False Alarms are a pain, but definitely preferable. And I love the thought of the building sighing as people rush out for the weekend! ha.

  8. Nice set of poems. What form are you using? It looks like 6-7-5. Maybe American modern Haiku. Nice work.
