OUT THE WINDOW

OUT THE WINDOW

our dear old spaniel
fast asleep by the window
blends so perfectly
with autumn colors outside
he whines    paws the chair    dreaming

our big old oak tree
ever but never changing
seems to reach the sky
while all surround    they rustle
they dance    they speak    come alive!

i’m out the window
watching the autumn ballet
fixed on the minute
inhaling autumn’s sweet breath
then this flash of wings    blue jay

    I love the warmth and tenderness in this poem. I can almost smell the autumn leaves and feel the sun warming golden reddish fur.

    You've set the mood for the beautiful write with the spaniel blending "with autumn colors outside". The magic of "the autumn ballet", "autumn's sweet breath", a lovely scene to enjoy and share, Daver! What sort of music would accompany a scene such as this? Perhaps nature makes its own symphony. Best to you all! Love, Mikki
