THERE’S A VIEW

Response to Sadje’s picture prompt on What do you see #144 July 25, 2022

There’s a view outside my window
Which changes every day
The sun was shining bright, my love,
The day you came my way

There’s a view outside my window
Which changes every night
The moon is high or sometimes low
And tonight it’s very bright

There’s a view outside my window
With water smooth as glass
No need for fear of naught, my love,
As we lie upon the grass

There’s a view outside my window
With water smooth as glass
Is that a bridge to walk across
A deathly dark morass?

There’s a view outside my window
And I know not what it means
It’s rightside-up and upside-down
It is not quite what it seems

There’s a view outside my window
I watch it every day
The moon was burning bright, my love,
The night you went away

There’s a view outside my window
It’s lovely, don’t you think?
If I step upon the glassy water
Will I float or will I sink?

There’s a view outside my window
But I shall watch no more
My love, you are not coming back
Of that I am most sure

There’s a view outside my window
It’s very lonely, don’t you think?
I shall walk outside and take a seat
Close to the water’s brink

There’s a view outside my window
Please don’t gaze for very long
For you will soon discover
My love and I both gone

    1. Thank you! And it’s my pleasure to share one of my very rare poems. I never think of myself as a poet; I’m a storyteller. But once in a while the spirit moves me and this is the result. Thank you for stopping by; I truly appreciate it! 🌟 🐘

  1. A beautiful take, Nancy. Repetition of line, “There’s a view outside my window” makes the presentation awesome. The last stanza is superb!

    1. Thank you, Simone! I haven’t written a real poem in a very long time; I just wrote what I felt and even though may be a sad one, I’m quite happy with it. I appreciate you and your endless support and encouragement. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. 💕

    1. Thanks so much, Grace! I haven’t written a poem in so long! I just looked at it and saw love and happiness followed by abandonment and grief. Amazing how we all have so many differing takes! That’s what makes this such a fun concept. Glad I jumped into the pool! 💕
