Open a window; what’s outside?
Sunlight blazing far and wide?
Branches dancing in the trees
and birdsong lilting on the breeze?
Is it an evening cold with storm,
with indigo cloud banks taking form
in a palisade of lightning, hail,
and whistling ghosts in a screaming gale?
So goes the weather, for a start;
Permission to reblog ma’am?☺
Yes, absolutely, my sweet! I am honored you would wish to do so.
Enjoyed this very much. Beautiful imagery. Ends with what could either be a very difficult question, or the easiest and breeziest of questions ever pondered. The windows —- of the heart.
Funny how often the same question can be at such different extremes, isn’t it. In this instance, perhaps the difference really lies in looking at the obscuring haze I’ve let form over the window, or clearing a space in it so I can really see *through* it again.
This one I could talk about for a long time; the windows of my heart. Sigh…. I have always thought your writing is so captivating. Wonderful words that have hit me at an interesting point. Good evening to you! May your weekend be lovely! Koko:)
Thank you, dearest Koko. Our Saturday has been marvelous and restful thus far, and I hope *your* weekend is similarly lovely. I hope the “interesting” nature of your life right now is positive and hopeful for you. Sending you warm hugs and encouraging thoughts!
Loved the words and image….have a beautiful weekend…Janet:)xx
So far, so excellent! Yours, too, I hope!! Peace and animal-companions to you! 😀
Gorgeous Kathryn! And the last line wraps up the whole poem, a pure gem 😊 xx
Your wisdom has many times opened new windows for me, Christine! Hope you’re having a sweet weekend and the week to come is excellent!
