London Approaches

On the distant plains below
from my Boeing plane window
a glint catches my eye
from the shining blob in the sky
a winding metallic shape
the Thames, long like a snake
the London Eye, rolling slow
The Shard, a piercing glow
It’s all coming
London approaching

The Thames

the Thames
what can be said
that hasn’t been said before

Murky, wide, slow
fast and swirling

They tried to scatter
Grandad’s ashes there

A Picture of the O2

The O2
makes me wonder
if a jelly fish
could have sex
with a hedgehog
