    haiku moment —
    the traffic in my mind
    also slows down

    morning rush –

    I love the “canyon” in this, as it has a particular sense of place, on a freeway in Southern California, and yet the general word is applies, and has a wonder. You can just see it happening, feel the “stall”.. the busy beginning of day causing the . slowdow!

    Another wonderful haiku by Mike. Mike Farley has just lost his battle with cancer. He was a great haiku writer, and a cool person to know.

    the death of a friend
