Leaving London


Before the rain
the sun drenched this town
not likely this time of year
wandering around in my royal gown
tasting London beer
meeting folks
disguised as blokes
my castle so high
must flee
if only for awhile.

....finding sense of belongingness in the outside world isn't quite bad... sometimes we do need to go beyond the walls of our castles to rediscover life more than as we know it & used to live it...smiles...

Ha, sometimes it is definitely good to leave one's castle and mix with the folks outside. A castle can be comfortable but also a bit lonely. (Love the picture.)

The photo is beautiful as is the poem. Very classic and straight forward.

Flee the castle and see the town drenched in sun ~ Love the picture ~

I much prefer sun drenching to rain drenching! Wandering around in a royal gown...sounds like a wonderful time...

sometimes we do just need to get away....and if i had to choose i would go rain, i rather like the rain....and i can only shed so much to escape the heat...smiles.
