Poetry in Motion

Way back I said I would post stuff from my writing group on LJ. And then I didn't because

1) I didn't love everything I was writing

and

2) I never imagine anyone is as interested as I am

WELL, I wrote something I really like today, so I'm posting. We were to write a series of Haiku that told a story and I wrote about our first evening in New York. I know I haven't written about the rest of the weekend there. See number 2 above. I've also shifted the order of a line or two in the poems.

In New York City
The subway car picked us up
Below the station

We emerged to see
Parsons School. Are you there Tim
Gunn, it's me, Sarah?

So many crossing
the street, how will they all fit?
yet no collisions.

Walking through Times Square
Why is there a Red Lobster?
Cure for the home sick?

Disney characters
Pose for tips. Midwest tourists
Don't notice the scam

It's so much better
At night with the lights shining
Than in the daylight

Cheesecake at Juniors
Al fresco is best. Can I
get this life to go?

This poem is adorable.
I met you at dinner in NYC before you went to the show. So I'm adding you here if that's OK :)
