“a busy window”

Written for:  The Twiglets #247 - a busy window

Witch and skull
decorations in
a busy window

Gazing out
office window
afforded her a view
of busy city street

busy day
much to be done before
window of time shuts

             A window washer on a high rise
            gave passersby quite a surprise.
              He danced on his platform
              on wood that was well worn
      Slipped, but strong grip saved him.  Not too wise.

We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    All set up for Halloween already? I’ve bought the candy, but I’ve hidden it so I don’t eat it! LOL!

    Fun reads. I just wish some of the decorating could be kept to the last two weeks of October.
    Some were up last month. But then in retail everything is too early. I used to work in retail… so glad not to have to do that anymore… work that is. Though who has time to retire? 😉

    Glad the Window Washer is OK. I know that some window washers at hospitals have dressed up as super heroes for children. One needs balance and shouldn’t be fooling around! 😉
