Haiku Friday - It Was in Chicago

Haiku Friday

It was Chicago
At the Sheraton Hotel
Blogher of Oh 9

Close to the river
At night it was full of light
The river's canyon.

A walk to the lake
To views most people don't see
Like Lake Point Tower.

Lovely Chicago
We love the lake, our playground
We hope you liked it.

Oh these are just stunning, Lou. I already miss that Chicago skyline. It truly is amazing to see the city lit up at night.

Had a little cable problem yesterday.

Like the pictures too. Have always enjoyed seeing Lake Point Tower. I knew when I got to it I had arrived in Chicago.

For a short period in my early 20's I lived overlooking that same lake, further north. It's a beautiful lake.

Chicago looks amazing... I hope to see it someday.
