Brooklyn Ny - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

Our hearts are in the kitchen
we talk with our hands
we yell down from our windows
we laugh even louder
we hug
we eat
we kiss
''fa-get about it''
that's our neighbourhood
Bensenhurst,
it's the place
where everyday life
is good 'enough reason
to celebrate.

    Dear Adrienne,
    Nice little slice of life; I feel I would fit right in there. To celebrate life just by doing the mundane; you gotta love it.

    I love Brooklyn. You described it so well! My daughter and her husband just moved from Garfield Place in Brooklyn to Connecticut. They were in Brooklyn for two years - I loved visiting them. I always felt safe there, walking everywhere to the little shops and cafes. Nice poem, Adrienne.
    Love,
    CJ

    it's poetry like this that makes me want to travel...it's not the world as it is, but as it is through anothers eyes...remarkable really, how, through the power of verse you can transport the reader into a different entirely....I love reading your work.
    always,
