Nerve endings raw.
Suddenly, stranded center-strip,
Street sounds suspended,
Startled, silenced by shock of serenity!
Toppled by verdant vision,
Nestled underneath blossoms.

As we waited for the crossing signal that would allow us to continue on our way, we glanced to the right, opened our eyes, and saw this glimpse of peace, amid the city noise and confusion. Perhaps everything would be ok, after all.
