city memories: taste

‘Taste’ is this week’s City Sidewalk theme for Kathy Munro’s A Sense of Place in Troutswirl. To write haiku on this theme I accessed memories of my early days working in Toronto.

Stopping for coffee and a muffin was once a routine on the way to work. I can still see the small counter and remember waiting in line:


morning glory

muffin at corner stand

before work


One summer I took a job as a law clerk. This haiku is included in today’s A Sense of Place:


law clerk dash

papers served

at lunch hour


At the end of a workday downtown I needed an energy boost:


going home

sesame snaps

at Union Station
