Hometown: A Haibun

For DVerse

My hometown — I was born here. I still live here. A lot has changed in 24 years: Instead of frequenting the book store –closed now — I visit way too many coffee shops, and from my favorite haunt, I walk to work. My new church, too, is just down another street.

So much has changed that I never would have believed it. But the biggest difference:

No longer feels like

Home — four walls claustrophobic,

Find peace restless soul

  1. how cool (to me!) that you still live in your hometown, but I am sure the changes can be very upsetting. moving away may give you new adventures, but your heart will always be here. i like the style of your haiku, it echoed your haibun very well, with the halts in the right places making me pause to understand the depth of the words.
