Facing garden chairs
at a table laid with snow.
No one here just now.
Photo and poem were originally prepared by David Sutcliffe for the Breathing Space January newsletter. They were created at the garden of this prayer house in Allesley, where David is a Trustee. At at time of winter lockdown and heavy snow, the chairs invited me to imagine meeting with someone here in a summer garden.
