Haiku #209 - Milwaukee, WI

Milwaukee Art Museum - built like a boat, by a park on the lake
I like Milwaukee
there's a lake and a river
and stately buildings*

*also, lest anyone think I've forgotten, beer.

Milwaukee feels like Chicago's kid sister.  I don't mean that in a belittling way, just in that it is situated on a lake, with a river running through it, flanked by elegant architecture.  I took a nice jog between shows today, along the River Walk, and down to the Art Museum and Juneau Park.  Shame we have to leave tomorrow morning; I'd like to explore more! 

Haiku #106 - Chicago (3)

John Hancock Center, among other buildings
I spotted on my power walk this morning...
Chicago's full of
corn-fed Midwestern towers
tall and strong and proud

I've only been to Chicago once before (aside from the numerous times I've flown through/been stuck at the airport), and I love the architecture.  Chicago, as it is wont to do, kept me an extra day due to weather.  I spent part of my extra day in the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the Hancock Tower, sipping a cocktail and watching some technicolor storm clouds.

We open tonight at the Oriental Theater - gonna finish my supper and head back over there!
