Green Light in Snow


The snow was certainly not welcomed by anyone today. But it came down wet and sticky and so it worked a little magic on everything it touched. All day I saw tree branches covered with movie-snow, making the whole city look like it was inside a souvenir snow globe.  But then this evening I saw this  traffic  light, it's bright green light piercing the snow to signal "go!" to those in the  jail looming just behind it. I had forgotten that this city always has something unexpected to show you; when you can block out all the noise, you can see it.
