That Window? - Poem by Francis Santaquilani

That window? Oh,

That's another brother's room.

He only comes out in winter, though.

Even if he stood on a beach

Facing a golden sunset with his

Feet covered in warm sand and

Gulls chattering and skimming

Over the breakers,

He'd only see an abandoned barn

in a field of new snow ahead and

He'd only hear the crunching

Of ice glazed gravel under

His boots and an

Occasional cawing crow.

    I have to admit... the tactile presentation of barn, crunching snow, and cawing crow could well linger in my memory longer than the postcard sunset. -chuck (Report)Reply
