Poetry in motion: #Houston flows on Memorial Day

20140526-184743.jpg

This is the first of an occasional series of poems, accompanied by photos, inspired by moving along, either running, biking or taking public transport. This one came to me as I ran along the Buffalo Bayou in Houston today, Memorial Day in the US.

Houston flows on Memorial Day

Through steep, soily banks
Houston flows
Buffalo Bayou
Where magnolia grow

Serene statues stare
A septuplet set
Wrought of iron letters
In global alphabet

A scaffolding crew
Clamber for pay
As runners pace for pleasure
On this, Memorial Day
