Owl Side

Night City Lights

Cities are beautiful in the sky-
bronze and silver flickers in the inky blackdrop,
reams of gold, glittering.
Faerie cities fantastic,
with their graceful outlines and stark edging.
You can't see the cars
or the garish signs
or the multi-colored details-
just bronze and silver and gold.
They sing of simplicity
and wonder dreams.
