Tulsa Skyline on an Evening in Late July

tulsa night

Skyscrapers glowing green and gold

against steel-blue banks of cloud,

the city rises from cracked asphalt streets,

shining like some starry urban Oz,

its resplendent oil-boom towers

still exciting heightened hopes

strings of streetlights drawing many eyes

towards its emerald heart.

    • Cool! You know, I’ve looked at your posts, but for some reason I had never paid any attention to the obviously Tulsa photo in your home page. You would think a poet would be more observant, wouldn’t you? Sent from my iPhone

  1. If you look at my home page. You will see the Bok Center. My husband bought several pieces of a photographer that was taken from. a helicopter. I love your piece of Tulsa. 🙂
