artwork: fragment of ancient chinese painting

window of this morning


my window, today, is just a window
not a conceptual interface to some
equally abstract mindset.


a simple window, framed of wood framing panes of glass
containing an uncontainable view of an orchard
flooded in light.


a single blackbird adds that touch
of purpose with no transcendence, to which some
- including myself, on other mornings -
will lend their own avoidance of simplicity
in ornamented twaddle about inscrutability
of designs and mysteries to be disentangled
from the tangles of our own brain.


the same for the expanse of grass
plainly green because it has been rained on
and for the plum trees, blossoming because that is
what they do, when they are healthy trees planted
on rich soil and when spring comes – because it is
what usually happens after winter, when the earth rotates
as it always does, only closer to the sun.


the same, also, for the wind, blowing from the north
with no mythical name or anthropomorphic contours
of face, voice, or hands disheveling hair that is
naturally disheveled, anyway, because I just got out of bed.


to consider the unfussiness of this scenery
through the honesty of this rectangle
made of wood and glass that is transparent
because it has been recently cleaned
fills me with a sense of peace that can only
be defined as basic and natural.


as basic and as natural as the score of notes
with a cheerful lilt that the blackbird would
be composing, if it were a musician, but
which is just its way of calling its grizzled mate
before it pulls a worm from the ground
beneath the plum tree and flies
– naturally – away.


so, this curve on my lips
is just a simple, genuine smile.

This poem is simple yet elegant, just like the simplicity and elegance of Nature itself ... just like You, meu Amor.

A simple, genuine smile is one of the most beautiful things we can share in this life. Thank You for sharing your smile and this wonderful moment.

Amo te muito,

Alexandra, you have captured moments of thoughtfulnss, mood and our mental labyrinth in a well-crafted nutshell

The blackbird is my favourite songster...I just love its unsurpassable fluting and trilling at Dawn and Dusk...
This is an illusory and imaginative pen !

We don't always need to abstract our thoughts to describe simple beauty, as this genuinely beautiful piece shows. Most excellent Alex.

Sometimes the simplest things in life can give us the most pleasure and cannot be bought, a robins red breast, a first bloom of sprin, a child's laughter all are free yet all are God's greatest gifts to us.

Reviewed by A. Santo 4/11/2006
I consider "a simple, genuine smile" to be one of the greatest expressions of "Thankfulness" we can give to our Creator. It always makes me think that our world was created for us to enjoy and share in a basic harmony.

Take your blackbird for consideration. Just a few of the wisdoms they carry with them from our Creator include:
-Connection to the water plant kingdom
-Doing trance work
-Use of camouflage in protection of family
-Ability to sway with the winds of change

Only those who appreciate the real joys of life can smile those contented smiles. And something in my heart tells me that when we smile those innocent smiles of peace and contentment; Our Divine Creator smiles right along with us knowing that smile can only be smiled by those who honestly seek life's beauty in All Creation.

What a glorious scene you've painted in verse. To enjoy the simple things is a blessing, indeed, as are your words. Thank you!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

You've made me smile, with your wondrous poetic window view, Alexandra. Well Done! There are truly many wondrous sights just outside each of our tiny windows - if we only look for them.

Ah yes, Joseph, everything seems so simple, everyday occurances that we take for granted, but when you opt to describe them they become as one with God. Eloquent.
