The City Greets Me

I found the city in a good mood today.

This morning all the pedestrian traffic lights turned "Walk" the very second I step to cross the road. All of the lights.

The shadows of the tall skyscrapers all fall on the sidewalk where I was going; shielding me from the hot morning sun above.

The honk of the cars and the bells of the crossing train seem to sound in perfect tune and uncannily synced with the music I was listening on my headphone.

As I look closely, I noticed the cars zoom in the expressway in some cryptic pattern. Two slow cars, One fast car. Three slow cars. Three slow cars etc.

The city speaks in Morse code.

"Good Morning", it greets me.
