another perfect chunk

managed to look out the window at the seemingly perfect moment yet again, into a bluish layer of liquid air under an oddly pinkish sky. The city caught now wearing wettest of dark hues, punctured by freshly lit, multicolored, manmade dots.
taxis look like early vertebrate with their third, glowing eye, and one could well imagine that the traffic lights are just an old lantern fish trick, blinking orange hands calling the few warmly wrapped new yorkers to run faster, straight into the open mouths of their mondays.
the sun will be here any minute now to pour gold over every visible thing but until then, a coquette dance of man made fireflies on a pastell stage continues.


a man in a long coat is using the flash of his camera to take pictures of the glowing sky.

Wow Witold! I almost thought you had drawn this lovely scene and then realised it was real. Sometimes I think you should be selling postcards.

looking at the entry again... sugar-coated postcards might really stick to people's fingers. ; )

I've been absent for a little while so I don't know if maybe you've already seen this, but I thought you might have fun playing with the scribbler. :)
