City creature

The city is a a different creature these days
Having shed her winter coat
She's almost unrecognizable to me
Though she intrigues me still

I woke to the thought of you
Smiled and got on with starting my day
While I know you are deep in slumber
I wonder what you dream about
And how all our dreams play a role in our waking lives

I have been reading a lot this week
Of civilization and the philosophers' ideas 
I hear my own hopes echo in some of their words
I am given into moments of seeing bigger pictures
Of realizing that most of what I know is still conditioned, socialized and not entirely my own pure thought 
But this inspires me to forge my own meaning

I think of you in this context
And smile
