Dirty Windows
Dirty Windows
raised deliberate questions
as I sat silently
struggling to see their former glaze

‘Will you use the back of your hand?
to wipe away the seasonal shifts
of dirt and grime
clinging and filling the grooves of my panes’

‘Will you look through me?
where the light streaks
nurturing warmth
then find a way inside’

‘Will you care for the living
growth? that winds inside me
sharing your tears of empathy
upon my roots’

‘Will you stay inside me?
through all the seasons
now you know
the dirty layering
builds our tomb’

This was taken at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens

I just love windows and windows that are in a HOt House are the best.. so much stuff on them and patterns.. hummmm maybe someday a Macro of those windows!! lolol

I know I normally don’t do shots like this but I find this one irresistible and I hope you find the elements of light and depth interesting also.
