Vienna in Winter

Looking Up
A view of the top floors
of an apartment building
on Siebensterngasse.
On the left hand, a glimpse
of rooftops on Stiftgasse heading down
to Burggasse.

A window
reflected in the glass

of the vetrine-like display space
of a flower shop
Feichtinger Blumen

It is images
like this artfully decorated flower shop
of which the cloth of everyday Vienna is woven
and which anchor this city firmly in a vibrant present
and at the same time in its rich past
