An open window looks out upon
The fields and grass of green
And trees, too, are found out there
As big as I have seen

And further past this open port
The beach stops at the sea
With slow, hypnotic waves of time
Calling you and me

Out the open window I gaze
Toward the people in my past
And each of them have different tales
That they have each amassed

Through the open window I peer
And see so many dreams
I wonder how each will unfold
Yet some never reached it seems

With the window open further still
I watch in slow review
And see things pass before me
Things both old and new

Each of us has a kind of window
You can open anytime
Just reach inside and gently raise
The window of your mind

"Just reach inside and gently raise
The window of your mind"
How much we may miss when were not willing or able to open that window!

This is so beautifl and so truthful
"Through the open window I still peer
And see so many dreams
I wonder how each will unfold
Yet some never reached it seems"

Ahhh, the secret to the Universe...opening that mind. And so many are clueless. Bravo, Jim on a beautiful, inspirational poem. Bravo...bravo.

Nice touch and point at the end. The mind is a terrible thing to waste as they say. J.
