A Window Person
By Curtis Johnson
She offers far greater potential than the frame upon which she attaches
She is flexible, agreeable, and delights to be covered, opened, or closed
She provides a reality far and above her surrounding strong walls
If you should decide to uncover her, she will light up your world
If you desire to open her, she will comfort you with cool breezes
She’s transparent, willing and able to serve your needs.
She’s a window and wishes to make you smile, but don’t break her.
And even if you wish to close her, she will agree to give you privacy
Mirrors will aid and assist, but mirrors will never sustain or satisfy you.
But if it is privacy alone that you seek, you need walls and not windows
If it is your world alone you desire, you need mirrors, and not windows
If “your point of view” is all that matters, you have no need of windows.
But if you care about what’s out there, and how others see and feel
If you long to share, to touch the souls of others, to give, to help, to heal;
If the tool of your trade is transparency, and you have no need for a shield,
You are a window person, and your heart has been touched by the almighty
You’ve heard sounds, seen visions, and you cannot be retained behind walls
You have uncovered and opened the window; you felt the breeze of the almighty
You are free from mirrors and walls, and like God, through windows, you seek to love.
