a rainbow-coloured sky
Myriad colours present here
the canvas is complete
changing by the moment
for a really special treat

Reflected in the River Thames
the blue of a March sky
still and peaceful water there
as I walk slowly by
Underneath the overground
at Kew, West London way
walking by the river
on an early Springtime day
