Journey home

Stripes and spots
In front of me
A girl toying
with smartphone
A child at the window
lost in her novel
A babble of voices
Excitement and anxiety
People rushing home
from work
A sharp turn
People hold on to the bars
The traffic light turns red
Children cross the road
On the way to school
Friendly chatter, love,
dreams, emotions
on the bus ride
Soon there is
A flurry of beeps
People tap their cards and exit
The bus has reached
the bus-stop
Where are you going next?
