Premium Member A View From A Window
The dawn unfolds beyond my fractured windowpane
and breezes tease while drapes, like serpents, slip aside
exposing worlds that race and run aground, insane,

Outside, the streets are stark...

There was a plantation of fir trees
for some unknown reason, most of them

Neighbors and strangers appear all aroun’, 
porch lights and car lights enlighten the town.

Across the sea in a far off land,
Hunkered down in a bombed out farmhouse, a soldier makes his final stand.
