Do go and read it, if you have a chance, as well as all the other stories. The Lovecraft eZine is a fantastic magazine and I'm proud to be part of it!

Where Are the Sunny Days?

I am in dire need
of the magic switch
that turns rain
into sunshine
and, no,
do not tell me
that rain brings flowers
there’s no point in
mentioning rainbows
you know what I’m talking about
you surely remember
the days
of brilliant sunlight
when everything seemed endless
when we were masters of the Universe

A Walk on the High Line

After accessing the park from the elevator at 16th Street, behind Chelsea Market, we looked south to get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty (here with quite a bit of zooming) before heading north. (Note: Start at Gansevoort Street, to see everything...)

Amazing how peaceful it feels to walk the only path of this long park, so close, yet so miraculously isolated from the mad bustle of the city.

 Spring was late by one month in New York, but any bit of greenery and any tiny flower  look amazing after enduring this year’s winter.

Along the way, you might encounter…

an intriguing window…

some sweet denizens of the park…

interesting buildings…

street art…

the art of nature…

and some more art…

The end at 30th Street... but an extension of the park is under construction.

Today I’m happy
to just be

a bee perhaps
a fly
a ladybug

rocked gently
by the
placid breeze

the youthful leaf
is all I see

a patch of blue
could be
the sky

from where
sweet warmth
on me

today I’m happy
to just be
