window (Remove filter)
Night has descended on the fields
but a summer night never darkens, only shields
dreamers from the day's dull hold
as I am wakeful, bedded cold;
and the trees stretch into the faded sky
Night has alighted on my mind
but a wakened wraith can only stray, its kind
vanish as summer's dusky night flies on
as I am lost beyond my dream horizo...

next door they've got new windows
all triple-glazed for noise and heat
hermetically sealed against society
frost and storms designed to beat
yet other enemies will get through
invisible demons with wings of fire
on those panes reflections of one
mountainous molten funeral pyre
coming round but I'll never be right
lungs crackling like broken glass

Low early autumn sun
a lone long strand of spider silk
stretched across the window glass
above a tiny downy feather like a snowflake
shivering in the breeze

This poem is a reverie and contemplation of my mother.
Time and Windows
If the past is a tattered old book,
then why am I a ghost
at my mother's window,
so clear I can sense her mystery,
and her brown eyes, so alive?
Look, I can fly to her
through the high windows
of my memory
until I'm so close that she disappears,
and the curtain flutters silently.

times and places and being....
always just out of reach...
glimpses flitting between lenses...
shimmering a way off
in the play of the light in your eyes...
from the window to my soul...

I was looking at that window thinking
there's someone I love in there -
and she was
I looked at your window later
waving a thousand times -
and yet couldn't stop
I'm looking at that dim lit window
as cold rain struggles to freeze white -
And in there are my mad life's beauties,
as I lean against the first of January's nights
