the reluctant deer with distrustful eyes
a view of hills to the west (from a hill beneath pines) of distant ridge behind ridge, distant clouds beyond clouds
gorse flowers have been in bloom all winter - and some blue flowers that i don't know the name of are growing closer to the ground
a view of east London from its highest point - again looking through pine trees
while waiting at a bus stop a shutter rises half a metre to reveal a discarded onion and some other litter - then someone from the shop behind the shutter sweeps this debris onto the pavement where people are walking and then lowers the shutter again.
the city and the forest seem disconnected today (disconnected by people who do not expect continuity, or shared happiness, and perhaps we are all responsible for this?)
