200 miles from sanctuary

Posted to Poetry

Blue hued light reflected
off the waters of the Thames
everyone affected
though all were silent again

Sullen faced she sat
by the clock face nearing ten
a babe in blankets cradled
as she drifted beyond reason

From Telecom Tower
I saw her
above old London town
Kyoto a distant memory
with us so far from sanctuary
and the others that had drowned
