As she sits in her rocking chair staring out the window with its view mased with vines that cling to the pane like a catapilar.
Small blooms that dance with the trees across slow pace road to a clearing of clover ,mint , wild roses and honeysuckle vines over running a frame that can only be seen during the winter.
She remembers the time as a child playing with her dog skip.
He was loyal to her till he died in her lap after a kiss good night.
His Bowles still sit by his favorite rug.
Out the window a gust flails her view with the whispers from the cottonwood trees by the way. Planted in a circle surrounding a doll house playground.
In the middle of one of fore rooms sat a doll house.
A dragonfly lands on the vine and rests a while.
As it cleans itself off she begins to wonder if the silly thing can see itself.
After a jolly laugh there comes a nock.
The voice calls out.
Are you ok miss.
She returns a breathless whistle.
Yes deer I am fine.
As she laughed a bit more the door closes gently.
She returns to her window to find her visitor had a guest as the bird swallowed its meal.
Then pecked on the glass and flew away.
She thinks to herself
Was he after seconds.
She giggles then returns to her view.
In a busy city lined with fake trees , flashing lights and thunderous street.
The chain fence and parking lot.
Through a cracked safety glass sits a young child. Far to young to be so distressed.
As she sits tightly bound and buckled to the chair.
As her mother stood sobbing in her husbands arms.
Out the window she sits at her desk in a top school for the finest students.
Set in the middle of a forest and trails that lead to a small but pleasant waterfall that some old fool carved out.
They say it never dropped a drip least it came a rain till the day he died.
And she and her friends would chant while holding hands and tell there deepest thoughts.
