Ferris Wheel

Found the coolest thing in on the net today.   A Ferris Wheel in cyberspace.  Interactive, no less.  Want to go for a ride?

This site  has a poetry ferris wheel.  Click on one of the hubs of the wheel to be taken to a poem which will then contain words you can click to be whisked to other poems — and around and around it goes.  Very cool.   Here is a quote:

“We all climb the studded silver steps up to the car. The old couple moves slowly, the veins on her hands gripping the faded green paint on the railing tightly, her feet not moving until they are sure she will not fall. You finger my hair as the couple climb slowly into a blue car.

The blue looks like them, I think. It’s a dark blue like the summer sky hours after twilight.

For us a yellow car. Not the hot white yellow of an August morning, but a cartoon’s bright yellow of hopes and dreams.”
