Garden City Lights

Living in a city, it’s sometimes hard to find peace and serenity till late at night, when all’s quiet, and roads are studded with bright streetlamps nestled amongst the trees and buildings adorned with the twinkling lights of the sleepless. No mountains or lakes or natural wonders to speak of here, but our nights can be very pretty.

Lights like dancing fireflies, silver and gold hidden behind the leaves, making everything dreamy and magical, as lights are wont to do.
