Beyond My Window

05 Oct
The world beyond my window
Is in a bit of a state
With pandemics, plastics and pollution,
Deforestation and nuclear waste.

The world beyond my window
Is in a state of fear
With anger, riots and violence,
Police suited in riot gear.

The world beyond my window
Is sometimes blue and green,
With life and light and untold
Beauty to be seen.

The world beyond my window
Was somewhere to explore,
Rolling on the high seas,
Rocking around a dance floor.

The world beyond my window
Is removed from me,
Years and decades have flown by
While my mind thinks it 1993.

The world beyond my window
Is somewhere I don't pursue,
It's not because of Covid
More nothing I can do.

The world beyond my window
Continues without me,
My ability has passed
To work, drive and spree.

The world beyond my window
Has become out of reach.
My access is now virtual
And that's a dreadful pastiche

    As Menhir says, that is very poignant. Is the photo of your actual window? For me, one of the great pleasures in life is sitting and being able to look out at trees. I find them mentally restoring.

      Yes, that is my view from the sofa. The tree is my weather marker, it turned autumn brown and dropped its leaves within a week.

        Wow, that is so quick. Our autumn here is slow – leaves are still mainly green although the brown, orange, red and gold are slowly taking over.

        This year we do not seem to have had any lead into autumn, it just arrived like a slap in the face. There are hardly any leaves on that tree now, a little over a week from the last photo used.

        Do you use light therapy for SAD? I see from the website that it’s recognised by the NHS and you can approach your GP, if you wish.

        I have a craft light with a blue daylight bulb, it’s nice on a dreary afternoon as it gives off a little heat too. I am certainly affected by daylights/warmth amounts.

    Hello,

    I Love those pictures , especially your trees. You have a lovely set of views that will change so much, even in a day. You probably know more about the landscape and the life you can observe in it, than the majority of people around it and within reach of it.

    The Poem is speaks of your inner beauty connecting to nature and the movement of time; almost merging as one. As Snowbird says, poignant, and as I say, the poem is full of life’s connections. It is a gift from you to us.

    Super post.

      From the angel the buildings are not visible. For a dead end street we get a lot of traffic turning around.

      Angel? I am missing something here. I keep gravitating to the trees and the lovely cat. xxxx

        Arrghhhhh! I got autocorrected. I meant angle, just beyond the hedge is the road, from my eye level I see several buildings.
