The Journey Begins

****

1

new year’s day
dipping the pen into the well –
a new chapter

****

2

 winter reverie –
the urge to run away
with the train whistle

****

3

the hustle and bustle
searching all the strange faces –
Grand Central platform

Like Bjorn, I was tempted to do this month of prompts as haibun.  I think the idea of a train trip, based on a novel, lends itself to a bit of prose with the haiku.  Alas I have an extremely busy month and may be among the  missing at times. These prompts are a bit more challenging for me and I may not have the time right now to prepare a post every day.  I will participate whenever I can.  One more thing.  Today’s prompt took me to Grand Central Station in New York City!  So I may not be on the same train as the rest of you!  I have to go where the prompt takes me! Enjoy your ride!!
