Poem 37 – Lea Valley on a November Afternoon

Balanced on horizon’s tightrope
The sun’s golden glow
Filters through autumn’s gloom
Bathing the silhouetted canopy
Creating an ethereal pathway
Jacob’s ladder highlighting vegetation
With otherworldly emerald
Quickened and strangely luminous

Afternoon walks amongst the trees of Lea Valley is an optical treat with the autumn sun revealing and creating vivid and unreal colours.
