Seasonal Snapshot

The aroma of sarcococca is overwhelming as a city worker in an orange jumpsuit yawns and uses the tip of his pickaxe to open the manhole. As if there was a garden under the city full of fragrant blooms we don't know about--the perfume a blend of roses and hyacinths.

The grey sky creates a restlessnes in me as I open the curtains repeatedly, obsessively waiting for change.

Snowdrops are blooming in traffic circles.
