Morning sky in heavy languish,
maiden moist with aching air
as a broiling roll of canvas,
once alive with passion's care
for what long was daily drama,
now hangs, is simply bare.
What became
of all my cloudy days of dreaming?

Where might my lover tread,
so ever solemnly to roam
while I, now fallen futile
to the honor of nights alone,
gaze out from leaden windowpanes,
only words to make my home.
Who shall come
to ease my blood from sorrow's steaming?

~ Claire

"while I, now fallen futile
to the honor of nights alone,"

Oh how often I gaze through the window panes ... pondering, musing ... very nicely written Claire!

Joining your fanclub, Claire....don't be gone so long next time...I actually started to write you a poem about missing the muse of the meadow, but I thought you might think me a bit strange...(or stranger,whatever...)
smiles to you....

Seeing as you've called this poem "Windowpanes" and seeing as I'm in a bratty mood, I've gotta do it.....

The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
