Poem a Day 2014: New York City Haiku’s (#28)

Here are some of the haiku’s about New York City from the New York Times Haiku Challenge (selected by Marie Howe, New York state poet):

Riding through the park
no daffodils blooming yet
— but unbuttoned coats.
— Sharon Rousseau, 50, Manhattan

If you buy the beers,
I’ll buy kebabs. Let’s call it
Insider trading.
— Libby Merritt, 23, Manhattan

I hear them fighting
Through the thin wall between us —
but I don’t take sides.
— Nurit Israeli, 71, Manhattan

If build and destroy
Are music notes, our island
Is a symphony.
— Laura Seigle, 43, Manhattan
