Tonight a fresh spring breeze flows into my window. Listening to all the sounds in this city. There are so many. Cars with engines roaring, racing up and down this city street.
Ambulance sirens with fire trucks screeching and; hollering are always passing by. While helicopters with their loud propellers shine their light bright onto the city streets. With the helicopters flying high in the sky.
On this city spring night a fresh spring breeze flows into my window. I can hear the children are out playing having so much fun running up and down the street. They will sleep well thanks to the spring breeze tonight.
Motorcycles, trucks, and more cars I hear them all. Roaring and raging engines racing up and down really fast they are going. The city bus does run up and down the street all night
On this city spring night the breeze sure does feel good tonight. There goes a police siren screeching and hollering. Mopeds doing wheelies racing up and down the city street tonight.
I’ll have to close my windows tonight. Missing out on this beautiful spring breeze flowing tonight.
No peace to be found for poetry writing tonight. Hopeful I remain enjoying the spring breeze. Oh how I wonder will sleep ever find me on this City Spring Night?
Poet’s Note: Living on a main intersection and cross street in Baltimore City. Baltimore Street and Pulaski Street to be more exact. Although I reside on the 3rd floor, it’s like being right out there on the steps and pavement sometimes. The warmer the weather gets the louder it gets. This was one of those nights.
My name is Cheryl Denise Chandler and I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My very first publishing was through the YWCA here in Baltimore, Maryland. It was 1979 I work with the newsletter there. A couple of people on the staff took me to interview a very successful modeling agent. Mr. Travis Win-key. They had camera's, tape recorder and I performed my very first interview. I have a copy of that newsletter to this day wrapped in plastic.

A volcanic kiss was becoming ungreen. The shark was coming. All night it was raining. The sap was rising and love-farm was deluged. A blue moon walks on the dry eyes. Why the tears had gone to exile? A mole
The dark clouds are rolling in quickly, wild wind blows fast and fiercely Many leaves and twigs start twirling around and circling Feeling like Edgar Allen Poe, In the distance I can hear some echo’s Of many dog’s barking in
As I walked back to my house, i heard a stranger that passed me by mumbling numbly to himself about why a sidewalk will never unfold itself near the end of a routine and then become a fretwork of shadows.
It’s those sultry days that sooth my soul, In the searing heat, empty like after birth we would bath, Fear of appearing odd, the taste of the sweet waters, Oblivious of each other’s different destiny, Our foggy minds leading the
Pillage started, when there were anti-answers. The trapped light- wanted to be released, from brutalism. When you were nearly drowned, in the multitude of questions, joining the palms, you collect the moments of solitude. You drop a key in the
