Snapshot

Standard

The world in black and white.When there are so many grays in between….

Ghastly faces of people elbowing each other on streets.Each one another story.A story of aches and struggle that leads to the insane tempo of their hurry. Old people asking for alms.Heartbreaking station of where a person can end up….Dirty children smoking and talking dirtier than convicts.Sad scenario of a grim future ahead. Stray dogs, hungry,breastfeeding or lying in a small dry corner of an abandoned cartboard box..Acceptance in their eyes, which is even more depressing than their unwantedness.Churches standing tall and proud, while people and animals are brought together in the same reduced universe of despair and indifference…Countless crows are circling above,small dark circles in a foreshadowing,creepy musicality.It is as if the light is dead and the colors exiled,leaving behind a menial sense of being, hollow and implausably choking.Snow dying on the pavement, icicles crushed under heels. Spit- like droplets of liquid dirt from cars passing too near.Cars honking, as if the silence wasn’t deafening enough.An aura of chill like a cocoon around every passer-by.Soap bubbles of untold stories…

All,seen in five minutes while heading home.I wonder how many stories we miss  in the hours and days we are blind to the ephemeral, sad universe around?
