Snow swirling
out of the Sky
like Feathers

Vienna tonight
Looking out the window
at 10:09PM


"If he hadn't been so tired,
if he'd paid a bit more attention
to the snowflakes swirling out of the sky like feathers,
he might have realized
that he was traveling straight into a blizzard;
he might have seen at the start
that he was setting out on a journey
that would change his life forever
and chosen to turn back

Quoted from the novel
"Snow" by Orhan Pamuk
Chapter One
"The Silence of Snow
The Journey to Kars"
