of sprinklers

Where was the photo taken?

Brian said...

Ah yes, why listen to one man-made sound, when you can listen to many. :)

Great! I've been wondering how many layers of white noise it takes to create silence. :)

Oh, yes. I have a water cooler (ersatz and cheap A/C) by my bed. The sound usually annoys me, unless it's "whiting out" the sound of re-routed and therefore extremely low-flying and loud planes outside. LOL!

Fun photo! And I love the image/sound of "canned music" and sprinklers -- nice summer haiku!!
:)

Yoga gal, the photo was taken in New York in Bryant Park.

I like the angle in which the photo is taken, and your haiku is so fitting. Very nice.

I love your poetry. :) But I would prefer the sound of the sprinklers to the canned music.
