Suncups.

Lovely dollops of the effects the sun’s radiation on melting snow. Wikipedia describes them as “normally wider than they are deep”.

Endless suncups against an impossible blue sky. Impossible.

There’s lots of nothingness out there.

Wouldn’t it be nice to drink out of a suncup, in the middle of nowhere with no one watching. Cups of drink. Cups of rainwater and melting snow.

Is there one person out there? Anyone?
