the window offers a view
beyond the horizon I want to see,
where life continues.
trees, birds, clouds – God’s creations
just like me but not for eternity,
for long.
Maybe for a while, until life’s certainty
takes over
and ends.
But the stain on the carpet

Reality can be a wake up call can't it. You started this poem soft and dreamy and then bang you hit us with reality, as the poet intended, I am sure. Great delivery!
Much peace, love, and light,

Becca haven't seen much of your poetry lately but this one is sure a triumphant return to the den. It definately makes one think and ponder the inevitabilities of life and living. Very nicely done old friend.
