The nakedness of an early morning sky never ceases to amaze me. It’s as if nothing happens until the sun rises. At just gone five thirty, the lightening sky was washed clean and unadorned, and there was no wild life in the garden, not even a bird. In the time it has taken me to feed the cats and make a cup of tea, two aeroplanes have left vapour trail ribbons, stained palest pink by the rising sun, and a pigeon is crossing the tightrope of various overhead cables with a Charlie Chaplin walk. Even the river has been covered with a veil of mist. It’s almost incredible to think that landscapes like this have greeted early risers since the Garden of Eden.
fresh green buds tremble
among the ancient branches
birds in the willow
