September Heights, day 2: Color

Inspired by the theme at

September Heights, day 2: color ... Another nice prompt. Colors? Everywhere around me, around us are colors. The color of the sunrise, the color of the flowers and all those different tones of green of leaves and bushes. The colors of the birds ... and the colors of the people around us.
I am an observer ... when I sit on a terrace I love to watch people who are passing by. I enjoy that very much ... sometimes they walk towards me and starting to talk with me, but I also experienced sometimes some anger, because not everyone is glad to be watched at, but most of the time ... people are vainglorious (in the positive way of course) and love to be watched.
I myself, somewhat in vain maybe, love it when people are watching me. Yes ... I know ... not an act of a haiku poet heh ... but I am just a guy who writes haiku (and sometimes novels).

Warm greetings,

"vainglorious" isn't a word that you see too much of in English these days, but you've used it advantageously in your presentation.
