House with blue windows
At the end of the quiet staircase stands a small building the size of a thumb. It is a fresh and soft house that stands there waiting, built of sandcoloured stone. The walls are all the same size, building a perfect square of a house. One has to go down to one’s knees to inspect it more closely: every wall
has five blue windows, and each window is decorated with hanging yellow figures, holding green torches. The figures are glittering in the light, turning and falling, picking themselves up and dancing, never without grace or lack of speed. Lemons, red and bitter, had fallen from the trees and like jewels are spread on dusty black tiles surrounding the small house. Some lemons had cracked open from the fall. Their bright-coloured orange, yellow
and sometimes deep red flesh was now exposed, glistening in the midday sun.
