dVerse/ Compassion Haibun

It was late summer, or you could say autumn, that little space in between summer and fall.   The leaves were turning from green to yellow and orange.   There was a slight chill in the air. The streets crowded with all kinds of humanity. More like a zoo than a city street. A grandmother with pasties and a little bikini, of stars and stripes, clutching her guitar.  Her son held her arm as though he was afraid she might get lost. Mickey and Minnie were there too. Bunnies everywhere exposed boobs and little panties.  A young woman with a tiny kitten, not more than a day old.   A strange collection indeed.


The city street was jammed
A strange collection of humanity
A hint of winter in the air

Compassion keeps us warm in winter.

Sounds like a nightmare. The compassion would be in not considering the people nightmarish.

I love the rich diversity you describe, all sharing one humanity. A lovely haibun Annell :o)

The race to push spring in and keep summer going brings out the eclectic fashions for sure! I like the way all the people were interacting with one another, helping each other.
