The Picture Window

Green KaleidoscopeThe entire world is made up of perspectives. What you see one way, another may not see at all. Their perspective may be opposite yours, despite looking at the same object. Have you ever considered the object’s perspective?

How often are we looking and not thinking anyone is looking back? We see things through the prisms of experience, emotion and circumstance. Look through the picture window.

The Picture Window

The petting of the pane
Sends the static  out
Of my stressed mind.
It becomes the glass,
Washed by chilly drops.
No longer in the blind.
Clear and beckoning
To be gazed through
Whether by day or night.
Clarity and crispness
Through which to see
Both charity and might.
Nothing filtering the view.
None refracting the light.

The landscape  peers in
Silently wondering
If a show it will see.
Knowing the flowing
Of mental images
Will rightly portray me.
Resting my weary head
On the crystal pane,
Opening for all to view.
As I wait for their sight
I wonder, deciding
To ask a question of you.
Have the trees and flowers
Always watched or is this new?

      The name rings a bell, but I would have to YouTube it to remember…off to hunt…

  3. Perspective can make such a difference in what we see & how we relate to things. Beautiful poem Red.

      Thank you. It does. I have been often told I am lucky I can removes myself from the moment and look at things from another perspective. Over the years, I have learned it is something I can teach.
