London For Introverts | Hampstead Pergola


faded grandeur
lapis blue shutters
hollyhocks, harbingers of autumn
a certain briskness to the air
burning calves as we scaled hampstead’s hills
etiolated hydrangeas, turned pastel by the sun
and a sister, home for the weekend, to share it with

p.s. a lifetime ago’s visit to the pergola
