Week 26 – City Lights

City Lights

I love the Bronx at night. 

The lights and the windows and that short peek,

Into the lives of this city.

It is so beautiful in the rain.

Week 25 – Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

It’s like the world’s rolled backwards.

80 on an October Monday, light when I get off the G train on my way home. 

The sun peeking through the clouds and the slight smell of saltwater and humidity I know so well as summer.

Girls in matching backpacks cross the road,

And four story buildings are starting to be home more than ever. 

Its like August is here again, and I’m out of place in my sweater. 

What a strange day.

Week 24 – There is a Rainbow Somewhere

There is a Rainbow Somewhere

Sun showers, 

And waiting to run to the car,

Through sheets of rain.

The sky is clear now and,

Clouds look like the mountains I know so well.

Somewhere,

The light turns colors and a small rainbow is born,

The air smells of heat and dust and clean, 

I breathe in and feel the trees in my lungs.

There is a rainbow somewhere,

And the promise that somehow,

The worst is through.
