One Fine Day As I walked from my class in brown hall, I looked at the sky. I noticed how the water sparkled on the surface of the water fountain in front of the magnificent Miller Auditorium. the ripples of light that were reflected on the sidewalk looked like bright yellow worms on the cool gray sidewalk.
