Urban dreams



Life in a fast lane,
no time to pause for smile, sob;
clockwork urban rush.


City lights burn bright,
radiant future lures hearts;
urban dreams twinkle.

This post is shared with Haikuheights and the prompt is URBAN

  1. I enjoyed your verses. It took a bit of time pondering and remembering...forty years in a small town of 6,000 now only 7000. The rushing, the lights, the hopes...appeal to many. Not me...I now prefer the rustic life in a small town.
    Peace

    1. Yes the seemingly laid-back life is healing, the rusticity adds meaning to life, but not everyone is lucky. That is what I have attempted to capture. Thank you Siggi for sharing your thoughts:)

    1. Thank you Sir for your encouragement :)
      The glitter blinds us and we fail to see what lurks in the city shadows. Not everything urban is bad though...
