Geysers of light
shooting water out of the hard pavement.
Displaying red, green, orange and white lights
illuminate this magic fountain.
Silently strumming a tune
of its own choreographed design.
Its playfulness attracts
feelings of whimsy in the souls of humanity.
To the hobos
their one chance at carefree play.
To the tourists
a magic wonderland.
To the hard working natives
a time of wonderment.
As night approaches
the beams light up the ebony sky
bringing a variance of color
to a bland world.
the colors are muted.
Instead ~ the syncopated rhythms
are the main attraction.
Parallels in a perfect universe
these geysers of light
enhancing both the day
and the night.
