Midnight Meal


midnight meal
it’s just us
and the waitress

empty coffee cups
we wait in silence
for refills

crumpled napkins
mark the spot
we said goodbye

Only to Return


Sojourn’s end
reminds me
to begin

Second home
for now, gone
Soon let’s speak

My feet on the banks of the Thames (South Embankment), London, June 2011, c.b.w.

Special Note: Starting next week, I will be expanding the concept of Sunday in London to include different parts of the world while also exploring other creative ways to play with words and images.
