spacious city


hillside view

feel the city space



Looking across the downtown area of New Zealand’s capital city Wellington. This has to be one of the most picturesque capital cities in the world. Both views are from the Botanic Gardens. Everywhere you look are hills and trees with the city stretching around bays and up valleys giving people views from almost anywhere they are. Even the international airport is aesthetic with a single runway stretching across an isthmus. Only Hobart in Tasmania and Nagasaki in  Kyushu Japan approach Wellington for my top city awards and both are located in similar topography. There is so much to see and do in Wellington and all in a relaxed lifestyle.

This is my contribution to RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 129 Feel & Space. To see a host of other haiku set to the same prompt visit

    1. It takes a lot for me to connect with big cities Joyce. Most are lacking in soul, have too many people and are driven by rampant development. These 3 are all not too big, each is significant to the history of their country and have an aesthetic appeal for all people. Their topography-location really adds to this.
