Here’s a picture I took from the 18th floor of the Gaylord Convention Center while I was there for NCTE. I had a great time there (see my post earlier this week), but it was tough being so close to Washington, DC, and having no time to get in to the city. This image makes me think of:
1) kids begging to go to a parking lot carnival
2) the Ferris wheel at the Chicago World’s Fair
3) riding the Wiener Riesenrad huge Ferris wheel (20 or so of us in one tilting car) in Vienna last year
And here’s my?first draft.
Splashes of Time
your slow-spinning hands
steal moments from
river’s endless hours
