The Window

window 2

Watercolor splash
sunset shadow play canvas
inky leaves hover
over rooftops and sizzle-
sift through wide open windows.


Lillian is hosting over at dVerse today and asks us to write about the view from our windows, looking in/looking out.

  1. Classic Burton piece ! Every line spoils the reader with treats from Lynn’s box of magic word art.

    Gorgeous write….your words stand alone beautifully. And, they also describe your view! The pale sunset colors are indeed a water color canvas here — and “inky leaves” is the perfect description of their lacey look as the sun is retreating. So glad you posted to the prompt!

    ‘Sizzle-sift through wide open windows’ … love this phrase. I like how your poem ‘camera’ brings us in from the distant view.

    “sunset shadow play…” yes! You hint at what sunset watchers know… the longer you watch, the more of the show there is. You have written well; tanka done with perfection.

    A Tanka! Really enjoy the sounds of the words – sizzle – sift. Your words are ever fresh, Lynn.

  8. This is so well expressed, Lynn. I have a confession though–it frustrates me because all I want to do is paint when I read such watercolor-words and my plate is already too full. What’s a girl to do?

    Nice description of the sunset through the window shades. The dark trees do appear “inky”.

    A gorgeous splash of watercolour, Lynn, and I love the inky leaves that ‘sizzle-sift’ through open windows!
