From Her Window

Photo by Andreea Ch on

Peering out from her window

Times changing much, much too fast

Being alone many years

Husband and friends having passed


Small home meets her meager needs

But, the neighborhood has changed

Folks come and go, few she knows

Life blurs by, as if arranged


Sheltered from the outside world

Homebound most days by herself

Family in distant states

Ignored like books on a shelf


Watching some television

Staying away from the news

Remembering old classics

Dreaming of Julie Andrews


Reading occupies her time

Local newspaper connects

Crossword puzzle smiling back

Novels thrill with their suspects


Peering out from her window

Another sunset draws near

Unfamiliar car drives up

Grandchildren bring happy tears
