Window Seat

Pocket Notebook, Entry 1

Window Seat

The city breathes through a flicker
of clouds, sighing Welcome home.
And I, with my temple pressed
where countless heads have rested,
feel the ground weighting me down,

plucking my feathers
                            thread by                             intricate thread.

    Hi Jenifer! Been a long time. Some notebook entry, feeling the weight and that plucking of feathers. You wrote it so well as always. My goodness, I cannot help seeing a head against a window. This is too short to hold so much. Excellent as ever. Warm hello hugs and great to read you again, shar xoxoxoxo

  • I’ve missed your kind encouragement, shar. Thank you. I’m glad the image and moment came off the page for you. (((hugs))) xox
