Haibun Monday: The Sky IS the Limit



The day after the son’s wedding, we visited London. The sky was hazy and sombre grey and the clouds soothed it with charcoal whirls. The London Eye provided a sturdy background in slow motion. The movement of the clouds was barely distinctive and the birds wheeled in slow lazy arcs. Above the busy city, the honking of cars and the strolling people, the sober grey sky cloaked the world. Such a malevolent sky with clouds an impermeable carpet of translucent greyish blue, cold, vast.

Cold and grey today
Just the right time to visit
Glad it didn’t rain

  1. ah that London grey! We must have been extremely lucky — several years ago we hiked the Cornwall coast for 6 days — all sunny and clear — and then spent 4 days in London — all sunny and clear save one twenty-minute rain shower!
