Autumn Morning in London

The sky is pale baby blue.

Everything still seems to be sleeping

as the sun dances on the yellow

and orange and green leaves.

A lonely train rumbles by out of sight

and a plane ducks down, flying low,

ready to land, somewhere nearby.

You are asleep somewhere under the same sky

while I sit here, nursing a coffee

and gazing out at the familiar and yet

alien landscape that is not mine

and another world away from you

and me, another someone I could

have been.
