The world outside my window

When everything
Went away
There was this window
The view
This balcony of dreams

I fed myself on starry nights
Drinking in the moonlit skies

Sunset designs
From colour
Palettes of
Iridescent clouds

Mythical drawings
Of imagined sky worlds

Over the treetops
Birch, spruce & willow
The whooshing
Sounds of poplars
Singing in ocean-like
Songs across the river

This little piece
Of skyview
Outside high window
Over balcony
Magical borough
Of the most
Amazing people

Cars & stars
Parking lot
Music parties
Backyard fires

Even a crescent
Moon night here
Is a mystical sight

The planets
Of season’s
Always & forever
Until long before
& from long after

Replete with sparkling
& colourful companions
The prophetic winds
The universe of things

This window onto
A little piece of the city
When all was lost
It has held me

In its secrets
In its mesmerizing
