New York City: Upon Approach… PAD Challenge Day 12


Writers Digest Poem A Day Challenge Day 12
Prompt: For today’s prompt, write a city poem. The poem can take place in a city, can remember the city (in a general sense), be an ode to a specific city, or well, you should know the drill by now. City poem: Write it!

Growing up on five acres in Texas,
I never imagined the day.
When I would find myself,
In a huge city far away.

Upon the first breathtaking view,
In shock, my jaw dropped.
The breath was stolen from my chest,
And the beats quickened within my heart.

There was no end to the skyline,
The world was flat, building to building.
Such an incredible sight to see,
So exciting and thrilling!

Part of me felt fearful reservations,
Intimidated by the vastness all around.
And this was simply upon approach,
Adventures in the city itself would eventually abound.

The Admiring Gull…


The onlooking gull
Admires Lady Liberty
From a floating perch

View From The Top (Empire State Building)…


Atop the empire
Concrete jungle down below
Shouldn’t have looked down!
