My Day 29 poem is my response to the NaPoWriMo.net prompt, which is to imagine a scene through a window.
I look at windows
all day long
They show me
other lives other worlds other stories other joys other sorrows other horrors other choices
other ways of being thinking doing having learning loving hating living dying killing
shapes colors forms styles letters drawings paintings photographs motion pictures
faces places spaces objects stasis movements
other people’s money
Sometimes the moon
The trouble is that they reflect
as much as they reveal
and their projections are too sharp, too real
It wouldn’t hurt
to draw the curtains
once in a while
