The Sunlit Roofs of the Imperial Palace
Peeking over the Construction Fence
surrounding the Theseus Temple
next to the Rose Garden
The Rose Garden
Only a minute or two after the peek over the fence,
clouds swept in and darkened the sky
over the Rose Garden.
In the background, the Museum of Natural History,
the construction fence is to the left.
Snow Began to Fall
as I walked past the fenced-in Theseus Temple.
The Grillparzer Memorial
A little girl frolicking with her mother,
their bonnets still kissed by the sun
while snow flurries dance around them.
Snowflakes swirling out of the sky like feathers
softly landing and beginning to cover
every surface in the park.
