Poem 83 - Life From A Window

I sat down, I saw through the glass window
Empty road, a very tall leafless tree
On the ground snow was very, very low
From here, a single bird I couldn't see

Not a sound, No slight movement to be seen
Only Silence in the white neighborhood
As far as I could see there was no green
No leaves on the trees, only their thick wood

I coughed loudly, still I broke the silence
Again peace restored, nothing exciting
Far away I heard the creak of a fence
Had somebody come back from their shopping?

Waited, but still not a knock on the door
I meant to get away from the window
Slowly I shut the window more and more
Away from the glass window I did go
-Gaurang Rao

  8. I could sense some need for activity here, Gaurang... very beautifully expressed... the feelings that leapt at me from this poem made me think of a dull, snowed in, blaahh day... yep, been there! So I could relate to this too well. :)

    p.s: When I am reminded of your age, I think back to my school days... and I keep wondering.. could I even write back then.. :)) Young man, YOU ROCK!!!! Keep at it!!!

  9. oh.. and by the way, you and I share the same last name... and I find that super cool!!! :)
