we rush
the storm wants to be
alone on the bridge

Nice of you to drop in, but, next time, leave your storm at home.

Too bad I didn't know you were in town.

Hello, Bill!

We've had a wonderful time in NY.

Now we're sad about those who lost their lives, who lost their homes, about the damage.

Well, we had a long to-do-list for this week in NY. We had no time to meet haiku-friends and others.

We (husband, son and me) saw a lot, for example:

Wallstreet and Financial District (from the room of our hotel view on Wallstreet-- hotel: corner Wallstreet/Waterstreet) stock exchange, Federal Hall, Wall Street Bull etc,

Rockefeller Center, Top of The Rock Observation Deck (combi tickets, sun & stars, so we could see NY at day time and evening),

Central Park

5th Avenue

Battery Park (several times because our hotel was close to this park)

we loved the ferry ride with the Staten Island Ferry

Highline Park (Wow!!!)

Morgan Library

Grand Central Station (Never seen a station like this one!)

Metropolitan Museum of Art (We love this museum!)

Saint Patrick's Cathedral (well, there was a scaffold so we couldn't see the outside well)

Soho (some nice design shops)

Brooklyn Bridge (Wow!!), Brooklyn Park (Nice!!)

Pier 17

Times Square

MoMA (the sculpture garden is our favorite part of this museum)

...and we enjoyed breakfast at Bubby's (Tribeca)

...and ...

we walked a lot, we used the subway

and last Saturday morning we saw the preparations before the storm (sandbag walls etc.)

we had no time for Guggenheim Museum

we had no time for...

so we hope to come back

Mir gefällt, wie der Sturm lebendig wird. Er wird ein machtvolles Lebewesen. Die Verkehrung von Ursache und Wirkung gefällt mir auch sehr als Stilmittel: Die Menschen machen sich nicht davon, weil sie allein sein wollen (sich vom Sturm distanzieren), sondern der Sturm will allein sein und schickt die Menschen weg. Der Sturm wird der Handelnde, die Menschen sind ohnmächtig. Die Naturgewalt hast du sehr schön in eine Haiku gefasst, liebe Angelika.

Auf Englisch kann ich das hier nicht erklären.

Danke für deinen Kommentar, lieber Rudi. Deine Gedanken zum Sturm-Haiku sind für mich sehr interessant.

Herzliche Grüße,
