Through the Pane of Glass

This is for DVerse Poetics, where Peter asks us to write about the view out of our window. I’m posting late because I wanted to get a really good photo, but by this morning, I was willing to settle for this.Β

With the blinds open,
Yet hidden behind panes
Of glass and a screen,
I look out upon our lawn,
A pathway, trees and greenery:
The sky is blank today.
I see my neighbors’ houses
But no neighbors about.

Later I might see
Some people walking dogs,
The sun might smile.
It’s likely that I will
Stay inside, continuing
To observe the scene, writing.

      1. Laughing here too. I liked this a lot – you’ve captured the sense of suspended time. Stillness in the first stanza and the ‘might’ of that future activity in the second stanza – and the coda – amongst that stillness – here’s the poet busy at her craft.
