The Unsleeping City

The Unsleeping City

I wish to see New York but I know this is a faraway because I am a simple Arabian man know nothing about the dramatics or the baseball. New York, my dream land, appears in my dream as a flower.  May be someday I will accompany a New York’s poet on Brooklyn Bridge, at that moment I won't buy "A poet in New York" from Fifth Avenue, in steed I will collect the rain drops from the heart of Statue of Liberty. Yes, I am an Iraqi man seeing the soul of sun from Empire State and I wish to sleep near the Central Park in that unsleeping city.

Hello Anwer...

May your dream of going to New York come true...

Some people are crazy and the City never sleeps...

Buildings are tall and there's shopping and great food galore...

Broadway and Central Park...

Muggers and Rapists are popular there...

Wall to wall people everywhere in the Big Apple...

Don't look at anyone when you walk by...

They will think you're going to attack them...

I hope I was helpful...

When you decide to go...

Have a great time!

Great write! 

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

Thank Dblankportrait, but Americans love Rumi with his mantle and turban. May be I am the second Rumi.
