The Colourful Towers

When I was little, there was a cheap diner that my family would occasionally go to for dinner. Though it couldn’t have been far away from our home, the drive in darkness made it feel very far away.

As we sat down at a table by a window, I spotted towers in the distant hill shimmering in different colours.

“Daddy, what’s that?”

“Those are radio towers,” answered my father looking out the window. “Every TV and radio station has one. It’s an antenna used to broadcast their programs.”

As I gazed at the towers, they changed coours. From white to red, from red to blue, from blue to green… And I’d wonder to myself how come these towers looked nothing like the antenna we had on our tiny balcony at home.
