rio at twilight

soft light, hard lights talk,
whisper songs of nearing night–
hills listen, preside

I’d been up on Sugarloaf (Pão de Açúcar) all afternoon, taking pictures of the Rio de Janeiro harbor. It was June, 2006 — winter. Dusk came early. I caught this photo just as city lights were beginning to twinkle. Corcovado, the hill with the famous statue of Jesus (Cristo Redentor) is prominent on the skyline.
