Shimmering Jewels

Hong Kong Skyline
What a majestic view! Looking down upon Hong Kong in the evening, it dazzles like shimmering jewels in the darkness. Diamonds, rubies, amethysts, and sapphires stud the skyline, like a 24 karat gold band encircling the harbor.  The water is still and nearly smooth, reflecting light like a polished onyx. All along the walkway, streetlights dot the way, accenting the piece. The city is adorned tonight.
