approaching a festival

It was a clear night when the ship cleared the mouth of the harbor. The stars danced on the calm water as they approached the city. Small ships dotted the bay, sparkling a thousand lanterns across the sea.

As they approached they heard the buzz of a large city, and something more. Celebration filled the air. People filled the streets, dancing from tavern to tavern, making love and falling to the thieves. Suddenly, flares of light filled the sky, images of flowers, stars and thunderous noises bursting forth from the nothingness. A thousand scents filled the air, perfumes from a thousand lands.
