Amy was kind enough to invite me to write a poem on this post, inspired by the pictures she shared with us. Do visit her site, her work is a treat to behold. 🙂
I am a lazy person, so while I penned these lines a week ago, I am only now putting them down here…So without further ado –
“I walked by many a window pane
But what I searched, I sought in vain
I looked ahead, I looked behind
I looked within my teeming mind
I looked without with tireless eyes
I looked despite my tired sighs
Was that the window that contained?
Is this the one that shows unstained?
That child, the image of the past
That man, of moments next to last
I ask of every pane I see
Are you the one? Mirror to me?”
I hope you like it Amy! 🙂
These two photos seem to reflect a life journey. The young girl, who sits inside of the window playing with her iPad, soon will be turning into a beautiful, smart lady, like the one sitting right outside of the window. The second photo seems to tell a story of how a gentleman is into his adult life. Though life starts slowing down, it looks like he is enjoying a glass of wine, a find meal, and shopping; and the young man on his left may reflect his youth.
… life goes on.
