Standing outside on the balcony, the lively citybreeze embracing me and starting to play around my body, catching my clothes to dance together with the breeze. I hear the sound of the streets singing. I hear people laughing as they enjoy their dinner on the local restaurant on the corner downstairs. I see a group of friends biking together along my street, perhaps to a party where they will celebrate the night, dancing and singing together. The sound of the old bikes fade out, and I see how more friends are joining along the street before I lose sight of them.
I look across the street to find a woman standing in front of the mirror and putting up her hair, as she wears a beautiful dress and drinking golden bubbles together with her friend. Her friend colors her own lips with a fire red lipstick, and smiles to her friend’s reflection in the mirror. I believe the two of them are going to a festivity, where they will continue smiling all night, surrounded with many others who spent some time in front of the mirror, choosing their clothes, fixing their hairs and coloring their lips in order to emphasize their own individual beauty.
In another window I see a couple opening up a bottle of red wine as they are preparing a meal together in the kitchen. She smiles towards him, as he asks her to taste the sauce on a little spoon. His eyes sparkle, awaiting her approval of his culinary efforts for the two of them to enjoy together this evening. Perhaps this is the evening where he realizes that she is the woman of his life? Maybe this is the evening where she will tell him how she really feels for him? Could be that their both hearts are beating very fast. Possibly, they are both still nervous to be in each others company. I can almost sense the romance from where I am standing, on the other side of the street, on my balcony, dancing with the citybreeze surrounding me as the sun has gone down for the day, welcoming the night.
I close my eyes as they tear up, tears of joy, tears of love. As every year so far, the Spring brings us hope, lust for love and open our minds to new adventures. But only for this evening, I don’t want to make any plans for what is to be done, what I want to do, or what I wish for. I simply enjoy the moment. This moment. This evening in the city. Where the citybreeze dances with my body. Where the sound of the street creates music to my ears. Where the love of the people around me sends vibes to me, making my body dance to its rhythm.
Hours later I fall go to bed with an open window, where I hear the bubbly laughter of friends on their way home from festivities. Intoxicating good vibes filling the street, and I fall asleep smiling.
