Ode to a Window View

Glass is a gateway to another world

Flanked on all sides by chairs and tables

A dull and drab world

Fulfilled only through functionality

Through the gateway is a different world

Unfolding with a lake golden with sunshine

Lined by trees either side of a snaking path

Straight ahead rolling plains

Ending in mountain peaks clothed in cloud

A right turn takes you further into man’s domain

Tall buildings, specks against looming mountains


Looking through the window gives you wings

Your mind can make incredible journeys

Soaring to mountain tops or skirting lakes edge

As eyes turn away flights of fancy vanish

Nothing but a mournful and mesmeric memory
