SKYSCRAPER ISLAND

An island, once far…

Now a powerhouse, worldwide-

NEW YORK CITY!

Timeless

but never the same…

a jungle

teeming with excitement,


surprises…

NOT chaos,

RHYTHM…

assaulting the senses

of sight, sound, smell…

a density of

visual information.

I look out the window

as our LYFT hired car

enters Manhattan.

City lights excite…

fire escapes

ignite the imagination…

Bridges stand

with cars stretched across

the skyline…

Skyscraper Island

with shining panes of glass

watching over busy streets

and people

as they pass

…my heart dances.

The rhythmic rocking

of the subways…

its wandering minstrels

make my ears smile…

and circus acts…

make my heart smile!

Loud…

noise everywhere.

Alive…

Shopping…

traffic

beeping horns

sirens…

Diversity…

languages

cultures

social commentary…

divergent neighborhoods…

a commuting culture-

trains and ferries,

subways,

buses and taxis,

LYFTS and Uber;

Expensive living

A city of immigrants,

melting-pot-strong…

people packed…

peace and compromise

required.

Wrap THE CITY around me,

the neon lights, my crown.

A city of

10 million souls…

what passions,

hopes and dreams,

aspirations

walk your streets?

The SPIRIT lives!

P.S. This posting was prompted by our recent day-trip to New York City for a photography workshop. It’s a place that I love… and wished I had more time to photograph more of this vibrant city! Another time…

I'm a wife, a Mom and a Doodleloo (the name my grandchildren call me.) I'm retired, but have always been a communicator, art and music lover, an adventure traveler, reader and lately, a digital artist. I was a TV producer of documentaries and features for 25 years. Married to my best friend, we just celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. I had a blog on another platform for 10 years...want to be more mobile so switched to WordPress. Hope you'll join me in my magazine formatted blog. See you soon...
