The lights of the villages
seem like fire flies on the mountains,
the clouds
like cotton balls in the sky,
the trees in the city
look like sailing ships on the sea
and people on the streets
like little elves
who have come out of nowhere.
The illuminated streets
are like elongated necklaces,
the shops
are portholes of spaceships
and we embraced on the balcony
are amused spectators
before the stage of life
and you too …

are fantasy.
