OUT THE WINDOW

Written by: daver austin

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
