Looking Out the Window


                         ... looking out the window of this motel room / listening to you sing in the shower

     ... knowing we can never tell our story

  1. Two images, more-or-less "ordinary" and apt to suggest similar moments in the reader's life. Then bang, a little stab to the heart and quite possibly another moment in the reader's life.

    1. It's a poem a long time in the making, so to speak ... yesterday, the time seemed right. Thank you so much for commenting, Nancy.

  2. Lovely. A moment that gently involutes and becomes private.

  3. I particularly like the juxtaposition of the very public (newspaper) and the very private (your words). Quite poignant, this one.

  5. This is beautiful - for all the stories told (like the writing on the shower tile wall) and those never even whispered. This woman has two faces. A public and a private self - a story never told. Very poignant post, Teresa.

    1. Thank you, Penny. I'm so grateful for the path that unfolded before me in this life ... and all I had to do was open the door ... :)

  6. Looking through a narrow opening always gives a special view. But, sometimes that is when eternity steals the moment away from the routine. Coupled with that the voice of someone dear can 'swaddle' our being with bliss...then when will time allow us to speak, so to tell our story? Nice.
