A few of my favourite things

London, Nov 2018

I wouldn’t want a world of perpetual summers 

I’d miss the snow and the falling leaves and the fresh green grass

 

Endless days seem like a dream 

But I’d miss the night’s stars and quiet

and I’d miss the sunrise and sunset 

When the moon meets the sun

 

Sun, moon, earth

all three dance the eternal dance

to music both known and unknown

 

Much as I love black and white films

I love my world in full colour

a black and white rainbow just wouldn’t be the same

 

Cities are vibrant, exciting and new

Full of people with something to do

Chicago, New York, London, Paris, Tokyo

I wouldn’t be without them

 

but they are also noisy and crowded and blue

with pauses for thought too few

 

The great plains of Africa

The rush of Niagara

The mystery of the ocean

The wonder of the Himalayas

 

leaving tracks on virgin snow

being free with nothing to do

the warm touch of a loved one

a party with friends in the park

reading and writing

Love

These are the things

I could not live without
