Vienna in the Morning
Magic September in the City

Clueless behind Glass
For some, morn' arrived too early

while others already
are working on the answers

or waiting
for opening hour

Elsewhere, St. Augustin
walks into the book of legends
all the while singing his song,

with a ragtag band of muffins
humming along, "Lean on me ... "

  1. Looks like the lady from the first photo was working on her tan and wanted to catch the last rays of the summer sun. Or she already put her summer clothes away, somewhere up up up in her closet (see the ladder), and didn't expect the warmer weather to return. Hence the hesitation what to wear this morning.

  2. Isn't today a perfect day in Vienna? So grateful to be here! :)

  3. The picture of the two women sitting close to each other and texting yet others who aren't in the picture, or whatever they are doing on the phone, is fast becoming the defining image of our modern world.

    1. I often wonder if there are still people out there simply getting lost in their own thoughts.

  4. Looks like a perfect September day to me, Merisi!! Always love your captures -- the next best thing to being in Vienna myself!! Oh, and don't I wish that were so!! Hope your week is going well!

  5. She's got her red lipstick on
    What else does she need?

    1. Carol,
      I am so pleased you noticed the red "lips"! ;-)
      (I bent over backwards to capture the reflection from a shop window on the other side of the street.)

  6. Oh my! Those muffins! That would stop my morning in it's tracks! A lovely morning in Vienna. xx

  7. Thank you for your kind comments!

  8. It does look like a wonderful September morning.
    Those muffins are really something ;-)
