One more poem before we head into the weekend.
For today's prompt, write a city poem. You can make the title of your poem the name of a city and write your poem. Or you can mention a city in your poem. And, of course, you can just set your poem in a city without naming which one it is. It's also okay, if you're more rurally inclined, to just write a poem about them city slickers. As always, have fun with it.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a City Poem:
"city of light"
the days were dark
especially the winter
but in the total darkness
it was easier to see
the smallest light
& then to see another
& another until we saw
an entire city of light
burning fiercely with hope
into the dark shadow
of the infinite future
