What Color Will It Be Tonight?

I've mentioned before that we live across the street from the Siemens Corporation. Naturally, their employees need a place to park, so they have a huge parking structure.

By day it looks like this:











And by night it looks like this:










And this:











And this:










And this:










And this:










We don't know why the parking garage colors change nightly (or why some of the lights around the sign don't work with different colors), but we love seeing the brightly colored box each night. In fact, we sometimes play the "What Color Will It Be Tonight?" game when we take Smidgey out for her final walk of the night. It is just another odd, but lovely thing about living in Zug. 😄

Today I tried my hand at writing a triolet for the first time. "A triolet is an eight-line poem in which line 1 repeats as lines 4 and 7, and line 2 repeats as line 8. The rhyme scheme is abaaabab." (Truth be told, blue is my second favorite color, orange is my first. 🍊)

Car park colors change,
Each night a different hue.
We think it fun, others strange.
Car park colors change,
Always within the rainbow range.
My favorite is the color blue.
Car park colors change,
Each night a different hue.

  1. Mysteries are everywhere, aren't they? The triolet works beautifully with your "response", or is it that you're a wonderful poet and made it work, "beautifully"? Thanks, Bridget for sharing more.
