Shard reflections

The Shard is an iconic skyscraper in London:

95 stories high (306 metres tall), it’s made up of 11,000 glass panels,

And reflects the clouds. (It was very hot, and cloudy when I was there.)

While I was in London, I came across the Shard in unusual places –

Here it is glimpsed from an alleyway on the other side of the river.

On my last night, the sun finally burst through the cloud cover

Giving me a gorgeous view of the Thames and the Shard.

All that glitters is not gold

Although we often judge people, countries, cities

On outward appearances, there is far more to us

Than meets the eye.

Despite current political rhetoric and media

That would have us believe we are each other’s enemies,

I truly believe that there is far more that unites us as humans.

We just need to make sure we remember that.

So, here’s to no more hate and a lot more love!
