    The City Circles

    When I initially read the poem, I was unsure what the “cannas” referred to. After looking it up, I discovered it was a type of flower. When I went to Columbus Circle to take reference photos, I saw the flowers for myself. They're very beautiful and a nice complement to the architecture and structures in the area.

    I thought it would be nice to bring attention to the surprising amount of color. Syracuse is infamous for its gray atmosphere. It was nice to see the colorful flowers, surrounded by happy people sitting on benches or walking their dogs. I found the area to be very calm and serene—a beautiful addition to downtown Syracuse.
