I was at City Hall a couple of weeks ago to see this art work by Boris Achour of a poem written in fluorescent lights and running for over 300 ft along the south side of the civic square. I was lucky enough to be there just as they were finishing draining the reflecting pool to get ready for the skating rink and caught this wonderful reflection, in the remaining puddles, of the piece and the surrounding buildings. The poem is by a German 17th century poet, Angelus Silesius, and reads - "The rose is without why, blooms because it blooms, it cares not for itself, asks not if it is seen". I couldn't get the whole poem into the shot unfortunately.
