cloud over Willis Tower  – Chicago 2014

from “Through the Windshield”

 

“…And having answered so I turn once more to those who sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer and say to them:

Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.”

 

fragment from Chicago  by Carl Sandburg

 

The white cloud over Willis Tower in this photograph, reminds me of the famous shock of white hair atop the head of the great poet.
