autumn afternoon—
an empty shopping cart
waits at the bus stop

    Very nice, Alexa. I like how you leave us hanging. What's going to happen? Are these the last days of a homeless person's life?

    moving on—
    the bag lady heaps her life
    into a shopping cart

    I reckon the shopping cart belongs to a regular shopper who used the cart just to get to the bus stop. A homeless person rarely ditches their cart or bags.

    It's a really good atmospheric haiku partly because there's a story behind every empty cart, including mine. ;-)

    shopping carts
    lashed against
    imaginary storms
