They flock to the lights like moths, spreading the holiday cheer. Their busy drone over the clogged traffic lights, breathes out joy in the air. The year ends with a final outburst of brightness in NYC. Everywhere, are the lights. And those moths! They buzz and fly- in and out of the streets- laughing, ogling, shopping, talking.
The city is suddenly a great dance, tripping over carols that jingle, delirious with joy, precipitously drunk with holidays. Step in with the tune, the lights. I collected a handful on my way.
And you dear reader, whether a part of the flock or a lone observer, are welcome to join in and share your thoughts with us this holiday. Whatever they are. How brazen are the crowds, or how sublime? How pointless are these lights, or how defying? Are you touched with joy, or are you cringing at the frenzied holiday mayhem that continues?
As always, a penny and more, for your thoughts.
