Window of Life

I am gazing - out the window, And I see an Ivy, climbing to the sky, I see Humanity walking by, My window, I don't see love. I see seeds upon the ground - dead. Seeds of justice. I see a child holding ragged little arms up to Mother, and another, Walking in proud hatred. I see love passing by, walking into darkness Of death, awaiting in time. Aged weariness just befell my eye...beaten... Hoping for elation of death. Walk on...walk on. I see a dog in playful ignorance, Loving the Master, and the Master In wisdom, painfully loving back. I await eve- and night falls, entering my door - I wonder...tomorrow will I see more... From my window? Patricia Langston-Moran

Very well written poem,Patricia. Very hard to see love in people from the mind's eye. The spiritual eye of love from the heart, tho can penetrate any thick skin illusuon of the mind! Good poem, have fun writing, love jm
