The Gentle Colours of Dusk

Yesterday evening I took my favourite walk in nearby streets of big houses and their quiet, forbidden gardens. The atmosphere was changing the ordinary: lights of the traffic were a string of jewels, the wet tarmac a gold thread. A kestrel flew into the twilight. Then at night we were woken up by an owl calling from a tree just outside the window. Sometimes this city is strangely romantic and alive.

Ha Eva, I looked up at that bright moon also a little while ago ! Bright and going to full, after a day with heavy showers and beautiful rainbows!

(Still going strong ???)
