Beauty found, underground

[Based on the view from top of the second to last staircase at the Times Square-Grand Central Shuttle end of the R train platform, Times Square/42nd Street.]

[Updated May 22, 2007 with video recorded May 21.]

A place's poetry
doesn't have to be
all Corinthian columns
and pretty paintings
Beauty can be as real
as steel
railings with several horizontal bars and rounded corners
on either side of the stairs
and there
at the top
to stop
people from falling
Calling out to me
to appreciate the "little things" that I see

Shabbat shalom

I'm at that platform a few times a week. Wonder how many times we've passed each other.

Hmm, good question. Time for another blogger bash?
