Fifteen floors high

City lights  in empty offices

Row after row of cubicles glow

under the auspices of what dissipation

do they toss dollars to the sky?

Monday Meme-Vancouver Lights November 25, 2013

After a few weeks of hiatus, the Monday Meme is back!

This week I had the unexpected pleasure of an upgrade to a penthouse suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.  It was stunning.  I thorough enjoyed stretching out in front of the huge picture window, and admiring the glorious view as I worked away on my writing projects.  The poem that this view inspired in me can be read in the link above. How about you?  How does this view inspire you?

Your assignment:

1. create a poem, story, or article based on this photo.

2. Post it on your blog.

3. Cut and paste the photo onto your post (leaving the Monday Meme text).

4. Put a link to your post in the comments to this post below so we can visit your blog.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!  (I will leave a comment on your blog post itself, rather than posting in response to your link here).

Every light

moving on the streets

blinking in the buildings

Every light

a life
