Singing sidewalks

Bright lights and city streets
Brick buildings and the sound of many feet
Passing traffic hums and roars
Breadth of teeming life, my spirits soar

Dark alleyways or hopeful lighted shops
Windows, quiet park benches and bus stops
Corner cafe tables, shining booths
The cacophony of city soothes

Blue city skyline
Steel and glass towers intertwine
Spread out before me, rising around me
Movement and newness endlessly
