Window

Window

A Poem by Marina
"

#2

"
I pressed my nose
against the window
feeling all its pain
as the winter of
its discontent
bears down on it
again...

cold creeping
into hinges
arthritic joints aflame
peering in
as I peer out
in reversed
osmotic strain...

for as I seek for freedom
my window creaks
for hearth
a place of
crackling coziness
far from its
windswept earth.

Featured Review

Thinking of the window and all the ravages of the winter it braves to keep one shielded behind its weathered frames. This is a fine example of how one alway covets something else. Someone wishes for free air while another wishes for cozy confinement. Seems like the grass is always greener on the other side....

I live in Michigan. Winter is coming. I miss the warm days of Summer already. I understood your words and thoughts. Watching the change of the seasons and wishing for a warm day. Thank you Marina for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome dear Marina.
You captured a moment, made me feel it. A great collection of words. I've been struggling over this review, reread the poem a dozen times, clearly eloquent craftsmanship. Anything that makes me feel any sort of way I want to put words to. As a poet, I shouldn't be short on words, but the contrast between warmth and cold, light and dark, with the odd intellectual tickle of reverse osmosis has me at a loss. Good job!

Ty, T.S Ulmus. Your thoughts on the poem and what you see in it is more than adequate for me. Thanks.. read more
Exquisite juxtaposition to portray how someone is always looking in a different direction, wanting what we wish to be rid of, loving what we hate, needing what we take for granted. Sparkling thought-provoking message done with startling realizations veiled behind a dreary dripping pane of glass (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Ty, Rose. Such a lovely comment! I am very grateful for your kind words. 💛
I can feel things in this write. Just the thought of pressing your nose against a cold window alone makes you feels things like actually doing it, and reading all that followed just got me deeper into the poem, the thought and what it all means. Tyfs

A stay in Florina in the north of Greece in the winter on a very cold, snowy day. Ty, Frankie.💛
I get so woeful when I am near windows these days! All I want is free air and I am denied that due to the fear so prevalent in these times. You're so right, dear poet! Its lovely to meet you. Love ~DitzyKat

I understand that feeling completely. As do many others this year, i feel. Ty, Dhara_Ditzy Kat. 💛
love the image of the "crackling coziness"
and the flames went higher...and it burns burns burns...that ring of frostbite winter.

Ty, Jacob. Much obliged to you for your words. 💛
This is such a gorgeous piece! I love the atmosphere of winter coming and creeping in. I actually really love windows and feel like many take them for granted. They shield us from intense weather, all the while offering us a beautiful view, but heat and cold can still creep through them and you wrote that so wonderfully here. Then there's also the feeling of wanting to be out there, and you managed to beautifully meld wanting freedom and the safety of a windowpane together, and I love it.
