Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner, featuring Vic Tomlinson! 🙂
Sounds of the City by Vic Tomlinson
The hustle and bustle
of city life.
Lots of automobiles, buses, and rail systems
taking people where they want to go.
Cars honking, sirens screeching, and the clickety-clack
of trains riding along the rails.
Masses of humanity walking the streets,
talking, laughing, and crying as they go.
Overhead, the pigeons flutter their wings
as they take off from the ledges of tall buildings.
Then tragedy strikes
and all is silent.
It has happened before
and we hope it won’t happen again.
Awesome poem, Vic! It’s amazing how fast something can happen when we don’t expect it.
