on a merry dance tonight

blue, white, electric
blue, purple, everything shifts
colour in lightning

gathering swallows
criss-cross hedgerows, heading south
winter's first shadow

stretching across paths
shadows mark summer's decline

coming soon enough
fiercely beating the hard clay
raging in torrents

we bemoan presence
your mild inconvenience
weep at absence

It is expected that a drought is to be declared in England today. July 2022 saw just 10% of average rain fall for the month, while August has seen close to none at all.

Now you're here, I'll sleep
Safe at home, warm in my bed
I've really missed you

take a walk with me
rising Thames and dappled shade
South Bank setting Sun
