Cityscapes and Citysounds

city sounds

City sounds

Passing traffic

Making rounds

Loudly graphic

Screeching tire

High and shrill

Hot as desire

A construction drill

Children’s laughter

A pounding hammer

Happily fading ever after

Heavy, breathless clamor.

The Vibrations Underneath

milli3

In between city layers 

Living as or amongst players

Bursts of light reach past a silvery shroud

Through soul cracks of cloud

Towering, grey steel turns to gold

While shadowy asphalt shivers in cold

A wintry wind rattles spindly fingers

But the tremble of life still lingers.
