London

We set off for home.
whith a haul of cooking apples.
strawberry and ginger plant babies.
but take the last opportunity.
for a slow meander
though empty london streets
right along the embankment.
past Big Ben and churchilll.
Buckingham palace
And St James park
to Prince’s gate.
Police and protesters
keep us moving straight through
And there we are on Exhibition road.
Broad expanse of criss-cross
clutter-free shared space.
We snatch an elicit lunch at the steps of Imperial.
And are on our way again.
via the Royal Opera House.
Straight out west on the A4/M4 artery
The wind is strong buffeting us along.
An epic journey.
Crawling along as crashes bring the traffic to a standstill.
In the mirror, a translucent rainbow
illuminated against the dark sky
as we cross the bridge out of England
and back into Wales.
