Window Pain

Window Pain

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

Despite the glare

Of the sunrays

Shining through

The stained glass

I can still see

What keeps

The window

In its place.

Nicely suggestive . . . like an open vessel awaiting each reader's unique interpretation. Also nicely visual in so few words.

The pain of looking out the window. A wonderful play on words, and well done.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The wordplay with "Window Pain" encouraged me to read this delightful little piece.

CONTENT AND FORMAT

Windows are often used to observe our surroundings without venturing there. The word "pain" is kept at bay. The question I ask: Is the window keeping out the "pain" or confining it where the speaker resides? It appears that the stained glass is not for looking outside. This is where I imagined a church; a safe place. Perhaps, the speaker is hiding from external sources of what troubles him. The inner demons appear to remain outside when the windows offer protection.

Concise formatting is always appreciated. The larger font made it pleasant to read, setting the mood for the writing.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

Overall, I was enthralled with the philosophical questions the writer evoked. Thank you for sharing!

sincerely,
ria

Pain keeps things in their place, no room for movement or growth. Like being stuck in a rut, observing beauty but not touching it.

Always a pleasure.
Hey love, very vivid images. One suggestion would be to change to "sun's rays" at the end of the second line to make it more visual for the reader, but this was beautiful and the color imagined at the stained glass...left me feeling the color washing through the light. Love it.

love the title...yes, the sun shines through but the pain of the glass keeps it from warming the heart.
