Rainy Day Windows

To see with the narrowed down
single-minded concentration
of a child who has discovered art
in window condensation.

To forget the rest of the world
and become one single moment,
clear-eyed, one with reflection,
joyfully joined with beauty.

To look at a drawing
with imagination.
To read words and envision
a heretofore unseen universe.

To lose the concept of time,
moments stretch to days,
hours shrink to seconds,
then sails in a tub to dreamland.

To grow up to be a super-hero
pirate, fireman,  whatever can be
dreamed, be drawn, be seen
in rainy-day windows

contest was for 15 words and obviously I did not do that – this was where the picture took me.

      It was a wonderful, peaceful day 🙂 Kids home, movies to watch, ate too much, napped, ate too much again…My kind of day.

      I hope you had a wonderful day too!
