Poetry Thursday - "An Open Window"

Poetry Thursday has come to an end. I will miss this club and the wonderful poets who have inspired and encouraged me. Poetry has opened a window of creative expression that I had never explored. I see things in completely different ways due to poetry and I love to share them. I've seen my poetry touch Dave's heart and maybe someone who has never liked poetry has been moved. Thank you Liz and Dana for all your hard work and time in creating a safe place to explore and share poetry. This was written by my husband and I as we looked out our window this morning.

Through an Open Window

the morning breeze caresses my body
like a cool sheet on a hot summer’s eve.
The sun emerges over the mountain top
beaming rays of hope awakening slumber.

Crisp clean air fills my lungs as I inhale
like a fresh pot of coffee fueling my day.
The song of the finch fills me with joy
as they splash like children taking a bath.

My eye’s open to nature emblazoned in color
like a comforting quilt made from loving hands.
Thunder heads rising above mountain tops
familiar shapes that beckon to be touched.

The outside will never be kept away from me as
it fuels my creativity like rain nourishes the earth.
Nature spills her beauty over me and poetry flows
from my heart as God speaks to me
through an open window.

It's not over Tammy, a new site on Sept. 4th.

Windows to your soul, that is what your words mean to me.

This was so beautiful, Tammy- you and Dave are perfect together! I loved the whole last line- maybe that open window is our heart...

It's all in what we let ourselves see - for some of us, the view from the window constantly nourishes and the small things that are overlooked so easily are often the things that can bring the most joy.

Wonderful imagery, Tammy and Dave ... your words will be in my mind when I look out my open window next.

Clare said...

Hi Tammy! How romantic and totally beautiful!! You and Dave writing this together made me feel so happy -- what a cool couple you two are. Your words are filled with such light, nature, color, and love!

Seriously...

Have you considered making a book of your poetry and prose?

You must.

Love,

His thin nostrils were http://www.jouqoech.info/?search=poliert+mit+lampen working like the gills of a fish.. He had already fatigued himself, http://www.jouqoech.info/?search=wa+hlen+sie+selbst+n he had explained, and his mother had favored him with a significant look...

paris parfait said...

Such a beautiful collaboration - rather like your relationship. xo

giggles said...

Very beautiful Tammy just like your soul! Well done you two!

I have the original iphone, and it's unlocked so I dont want to update it or it will brick, but some games require at least version 2.0, so how do I find out if I have that or not? Thanks.
