I felt the authors did a great job at capturing the essence of NYC, often with humor. It's also inspired me to try my hand at some poetry of my own.
Purchase it and treasure it.
I loved reading these haiku! They really captured the spirit of New York City, its people, places, food, culture and attitudes. I read some of them to my husband and we cracked up. Like this one:
Tourists in New York
Three abreast, strolling, chatting:
I want to shove you.
Others made us reflect, like those that featured the homeless or loneliness. The poems are creative and succinctly describe NYC and its people. I loved this one:
Rainy Monday, you
won't defeat my stilettos.
Red soles leap puddles.
The black and white illustrations are perfect for this book. They fit the tone of the book and whimsically capture NYC. Most of the poems are written by New Yorkers, but there are are some from readers in other states and even other countries.
If you love New York City and poetry, then you will love this neat little book. The fact that it contains poetry from people of all ages and backgrounds who share readership of The New York Times makes this a unique collection about a unique city.
An entertaining, thought-provoking and worthy collection of haiku.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book. I willingly chose to read and review it.
