Dim Whitby Windows


  Sunrise Coffee Service
One year, one month ago today 
I looked
Through a clear window facing west, so said
And thought Dad’s words and things he’d penned and booked
Before a broken body was said dead.

Today I seek a caffeine rush to clear
The  darkling smokey glass  of windows blurred
By mind’s eye sleepy visions inside fear
Behind an agate eyegate cloaked and furred

Now facing east I see a rising sun
Reflected on a silicated pane
Now captured by Nokia’s lens of one
Unwired connection netted, linked,  and lain

In tangled webs of  you’re onlines so swift
Now run to tell of eyelid’s joyous lift.

“This life’s dim windows of the soul
Distorts the heavens from pole to pole
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not through, the eye.”
