New York City - Skyline Sunset - Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan
where the city
held the sun
in its palms,
holding on to
for as long as it could;
full of light,

New York City Skyline at Sunset on a Stormy Evening
The sky was on fire that night
as the sun rode down towards the horizon
leaving a trail of glowing embers in its wake.
And our hearts were beating
to the rhythm of the skyline:
heart beats that traveled
up and down the
rising crescendos and diminuendos
of the tops of skyscrapers
on the trailed off sentences
as our lips met.
This is an older photograph of the New York City skyline during one of the most spectacular sunsets I have seen in the city. You can tell it is an older skyline photo due to the state of 1 World Trade Center which was in its infancy stages. It is interesting how architecture can date an image particularly when your subject matter is one of the most evolving and popular skylines in the world.
Prior to taking this photograph, I had gotten caught in a torrential downpour while walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. As soon as I crossed the bridge, the rain stopped and the skies opened in a tremendously dramatic fashion to reveal a decidedly fiery sunset with a tiny hole in the clouds perfect enough for a plane to traverse. It was one of the most perfect moments.

There is a point every evening
when the sun rains its light down
leaving a trail of
in its wake:
tiny golden slivers
of the day’s
in the gleam
of the city’s eye.

New York City sunsets are songs.
They remind you of all of the times
you ran with open arms
into a city that embraced you back
on the whisper of a breeze
in a skyline reflected in glistening eyes
wide with hope.
carries the promise
of a new song.
This image was taken from the top of Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) with the Sony A99 during an absolutely gorgeous sunset. The view is of the skyscrapers and rooftops of the midtown Manhattan skyline looking south including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and 1 World Trade Center.
