The fag end of winter

So it rained a little bit today and then the sky changed. I forgot my phone in the car. I thought I'll settle down for the evening and then go out and get it. 45 minutes later when I went down there wasn't a soul in sight and the sky was an orange and blue spectacle. I felt deliciously alone as if everyone had abandoned their cars and houses and left me alone. There wasn't a single sound aside from a solitary bird chirping away. It was almost surreal. All the buildings bathed in a deep orange. The sun leaving for wherever he goes every evening. The clouds sprinkled like cotton flowers across the blue sky. The silence ever so beautiful. Perfect three minutes of solitude till a child began laughing.
