  • Walking along the cool green pathways of Battersea park
    Holding my girl's hand, talking as we went
    We came across this Buddha
    Sitting quietly, shining softly
    At peace on a platform dedicated to just that.

    I have come across this photo two years later
    In another place, another space
    Not a buddhist, but with a respect for the energies of the world
    Doing something completely different
    Working towards a crazy deadline
    And then this photo appears

    And in the same way
    A feeling of peace settles
    Quietly, softly
    Just that
