Internalising Poem Example

Tiny Window to the World

Tiny Window to the World

Marooned in the consuming gloom
Cut away from escape or from egress
Between me and the Wild World
Ly a tiny window
Through which I espy the world
By an open vista to teeming life 
Sprawling across rolling mountains
And roiling waves of the sea.

Between me and the World 
Is a Small Window
That paints and bestows life’s rupture
Window that avails treasures of nature
A small window never opened
Through which diversity of life unfold;
Happy people, sad people, mad people....
A tiny window that never let go 
Abundantly giving a whiff of stirring colour
Dancing or twisting in wanton glee!

A tiny window 
that never shuts or darken
Yet, forever shut me in its fold, its hold
Captivating with a kaleidoscope of races
Internalising me to its whim;
Not to look in one direction always....
To admire life beyond the gloom
To look beyond the tiny window
Onto the rhapsody of His Artifice
Pouring through the inspiring panorama, 
To write with verve and gusto
To celebrate creation with rupture
To reclaim lost dignity with frenzy.

A tiny window, 
so miniscule and so minute,
Through which no finger can caress the air
To catch a breeze blowing lackadaisical
To the dry sea and the frigid Equator!
Window that must let go of my lust
And quell the conflagration on the loin
A tiny window that sees not itself
That permanently keeps me in its hold.
That which, if you take it away, 
You abduct me away into the darkness
To grope in futility and verdant folly.

Tiny window
Like a telescope drawing creation nigh
Or periscope giving form to tiny pestilent;
Life curling, springing and twirling
In unique idiosyncrasies of its nature;
Man attempting to play flagella’
By mutilations, mutations, castrations
Women and botox and lipstick and all....
Window that makes one want to close
Yet, at times, it makes you a peeping Tom! 
This tiny Window, I fancy heard it say: 
“Don’t close the window or curtain it
“For Africa speaks outside....”
That Tiny Window is my Eye!
