From the top of the window down the climb of the sky is cobalt. As the eye moves down it, scrutinising and searching, it comes up against a straight-bottomed, moustache-shaped cloud that stretches across the entire width of the view.
The lightening drop of the cobalt travels down behind the cloud and emerges on the other side as very light cerulean.
This description covers the view from the perspective of top to bottom / bottom to top.
The diagonal perspectives reaching from the width of the view and forming the flat floor of the triangulating lines that meet at the end of the thus formed long thin triangle at an elegant spindly television mast perched on a small white square block atop an angular building.
The spectator assumes this to be the top of a lift shaft or flight of stairs that opens onto a roof terrace behind the square block perched on top of the triangular building.
If that is a roof terrace, reasons the spectator, then I would like to buy that house and live in it.
The spectator then frowns.
On the other hand, reasons the spectator, I could simply be pleased that such a place exists and leave it be.
