Another day, another constitutional down at the Danube in a bit more than a couple of hundred words.

In this prasine, but slowly yellowing autumn, brownish tones also appeared like liver spots on the skin. Some trees donned a dark or even licentious foliage dress. Revealing much of their branches, like the shorts, which revealed much of your slightly prickly but velvety thighs.

The Halászbástya (Fisherman’s Bastion) swam sluggishly and gracefully on the Danube today. In its wake soft waves rose like the ones in your hair on one of the pictures you had sent me from work.

There were all kinds and sorts of birds near the river today. They were fishing, cleaning themselves or were searching for seeds. And there were a relatively large number of people too, although they were not that interesting. And of course they weren’t fishing, cleaning themselves or were searching for seeds on the esplanade.

The city was bustling like an anthill, even though it was Friday. It seemed everyone wanted to get everything done quickly today, before the weekend. A woman with black hair and a red dress almost ran into me on the street. She looked me over and I could tell she liked what she saw. Her annoyed frown turned into a smile. I smiled back at her, but my sunglasses prevented her from seeing that, to paraphrase a line from Virgil’s Aeneid: you were in my eyes.

I was in a good mood today, although I miss your words, your voice. It’s been a long time since you wrote to me. I’ll keep writing these nanotales even if you may never read them. Or, as I wrote before: I hope. Because winter is approaching, but then spring will follow again…
