Watching through Windows.

Outside it is a beautiful sunny day.
I sit in the office and watch it through the window.

How lovely to be a butterfly,
fluttering through the flowers;
to be a hawk, circling high,
keeping a sharp eye on the landscape below.

Or a tree, bowing with the wind,
clapping my leaves and swaying in time.
But I am me, and here I sit,
in my office, watching through the window.

After work I will get out and enjoy the day,
I’ll sing with the birds and dance with the breeze.
But by then the day will almost be over,
and I am tired.

So I’ll sit in my kitchen when I get home,
and watch the sun set through my window.

Watching through Windows.
