The View Outside

Gazing out of the window

Her solitary, lethargic gaze

Drops upon a quivering

Frightened grey squirrel

Scampering through the trees.

The sound of laughter;

Children running through the fields

playing catch with cherry cheeks

and joyful hearts.

Bursting dandelion rays of sunshine

Through juniper and emerald leaves

Trace their way through the stained window

But she can no longer

Feel their warmth

On her palms.
