The View From My Window
Who says it is not possible – the paragon of refinement?
The evidence is there for anyone blessed with eyes to see.
Yet the other night in a dream I fell in love with a blind person
Whose humanity eroded my resistance.
While it was just a fantasy I woke with my heart still quivering
And my mind began to question.
What is this power that transcends affection and moves beyond doubt?
Our languages are ill-equipped to offer fair definition.
However today as I look again upon the landscape,
I feel my heart beat and my lungs expand.
My mind is quiet from thoughts of needing to be elsewhere
And I am taking full pleasure in just being here now.
