City alive

City alive

The city’s alive with its secrets under the cobblestones and in back courtyards, down side streets and basking on café terraces along wide boulevards bathed in delicious late-spring sun.
At my desk, birdsong drifts in the window. So does the grind and screech of the trash men making their morning rounds.
In the back of the garden, I can hear the church bells ring every quarter hour.
Now must run to an appointment, connecting across borders and time zones to join with another just right here.
