Ode To A City I See
by Jeanne Sigel

Seagulls soaring as high as our dreams,
Proudly announcing their arrival
As they lay claim to seasoned roof tops.


O, city as wide as a smile
Reflecting the beauty of a bright future
Amidst its gritty past


Learn from your fair and bronzed skin children
With ice cream smeared faces
Digging for treasures
In the warm sandy beaches
Of imagination


What was lost can be found


If only
you believe
