Stockholm

Romancing the city

Early morning dawn:

I take out my mobile phone as I sit in a car and capture

The romance of the sky over Stockholm.

(I like the way the car window frames the cityscape.)

On the way home from work,

Lilac and pink clouds

Bid the sun farewell at sunset.

Of snowy bikes and Christmas trees

My daughter and I visited Stockholm during the last weekend

Before school and work started.

The sky was heavy with the promise of more snow.

The pastel buildings looked like cakes

Topped with icing.

(Look at the height of the city’s Christmas tree – 38 metres tall

And decorated with 5,000 lights!)

Fairy tale buildings

Brightened the gloomy sky;

Stockholm red.jpg

And optimism was not lost

In the knee-deep snow!

(Not sure if that cyclist ever managed to cycle home though!)
