Windows make imagination soar! Yours is wonderful!
I have always been fascinated by lights in the window while driving late at night.....who lives there ?love watching the ordinary ceremony of living
good to see houses with living people in them you know...smiles.
ha ha smartie pantsguess it does beat ghosts living there
I've been a big city dweller most of my life. These few words of yours articulate why I love it so much.
oh I get this.....never alonethere becomes a rhythmn and ceremony of lives
Cheer is good ..........
cheer rides along with comfort for me
I like to walk on a summer night and hear the winding down of people's days as I pass by. The clatter of dishes being cleaned up, the smells of grills dying down and laundry done late, the squeals of kids thrilled to be out playing on the lawn after dark. There is common innocence about it all that just feels nice. Nice poem, concise, well chosen words.
Wrinks...I think you are a closet college english professorI just know it
Lights in the windows, even if I see no one, is a comfort in knowing there is activity to defy darkness. Darkness of night, and darkness of mind. Re: Your comment about the differences between afternoon and morning light.... I agree, but I think I sense those differences because morning is cooler, afternoon warmer from hours in the day. Gives us a different ambient feeling. But I also see similarities the way I do between spring and autumn. There's a time somewhere in November here, where what's left of leaves on trees almost looks like the beginnings of spring. Oh, I'm ever the hopeful one for warm weather!!! :)
Oh I have observed this autumn/spring magic trick myselfand you may be right about temperatureyou win
Hope all is well...
Hi Farmlady...it is amazing how much this one affected our family..the incredible sadness that covers us like honeybut we go forward...slowlythanks
Reminding us, that life goes on.
life has a rhythmn around usif we observe the ordinarythanks...behind those windowsare stories, but for now I seethe rhythmn
"the ordinary ceremony of living", what a lovely way to put it. I too like to stroll in the evening and watch life close down for the day. We look, but we never know what's actually going on behind those windows. Joy, sorrow, numbness or oblivion.I'm sure your window's present a glowing picture of joy and contentedness even though the sorrow lives on. Thinking of you and yours and this puzzle of life xx
I think Ill take a late night walk oh sorrow....a different kind of ceremonythanks for vistingI enjoyed it
