Manhattan Reverie~by Paul F. Lenzi



Manhattan Reverie


“Abstract Manhattan” by Brian Carter

metropolis sculpted

from granite ambitions

each skyscraping statue

erect in its embrace by

an armature of commerce

deep mercantile canyons

their enterprise shimmers

in swift racing glide on

the grain of two rivers

converged at the battery

southernmost outpost

of free aspirations

here history found him

and gave his sharp mind

clever means to discover

and climb secret paths

from the sun deprived

pall of collective endeavor

attaining a rarefied place

among peaks of the skyline

enlightened and warmed

by his own private sun


  1. thank you for sharing my poem with your readers
