Travel Haiku - Millennium Park (Chicago)


Millennium Park Cloud Gate
our cameras freeze a part
of the millennium for us

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
coming out of my mouth
the millennium inside me

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
the millennium inside me cheers
on the millennium outisde

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
we freeze the millennium
with a click of our cameras

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
we stop the millennium
for a friendship picture

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
grinning at the fists
at our own faces

he throws a millenium joke
as she takes his picture
'that's the smartest guy on earth'

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
we take fist at own face pictures
in the steel mirror

Millennium Park Cloud Gate
scowling our faces
for the picture of the millennium

Cloud Gate Steel Mirror
raising my hand up ala
statues of liberty

Chicago
With world-class museums, unparalleled food, and first-rate theater, Chicago's got a legit claim to fame. Check out one of the city's newer additions, Millennium Park, with its quirky public art and fun, warm weather activities. Start off the weekend with yoga in the park and cool off in the fountains, or catch an evening music or dance performance after eating some authentic Chicago deep dish pizza on nearby Michigan Avenue.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
