Chinese Proverb

There is a special place in our yard where heaven has met the earth. This heaven is a swirl of azure, cerulean, sapphire and cobalt. In it, the whispering wind sings a delicately soft turlee. This heaven flashes an eternal sunset of crimson set on ivory. It sees with sharp eyes of midnight ink.

Long after midnight the windows of the house shone like gold, and golden song flowed out into the winter air.
