early bus—
catching my reflection
in the police van window

    I was wondering if it needs something to set the scene, but it's perfect as it is. Nicely done!

    A classic experience–catching our reflections at unexpected times!

    seeing my reflection
    in store windows
    feeling younger today
    than I look
    days grow longer

    Happy New Year

    the heron
    motionless
    his reflection ripples in time

    For some the daily routine is a bus to work, or for some other purpose, while for others it's the early visit to criminal courts. Life goes on in all its forms.

    There are other layers to this haiku as well, so I hope readers come back to this excellently crafted haiku.
