Ode to a window view


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
